Lyrics

In Rio

I was striking suave, ambitious, feet to beak, so birdi-licious
Now I'm vile, I am villainous, and vicious - Oh, and malicious.

I had it all, a TV show - women too!
I was tall, over one foot two!
Then they got a pretty parakeet to fill my shoes,
That's why I am so evil,
Why I do what I do.

[He was a superstar...!]
So young and vital
[He’s nasty...!]
A South American Idol!
[He's a suspicious bird...!]
Who said that about me?
[A very vicious bird...!]
I'll have you rotisseried!

I'm a feathery freak
With a beak,
A bird murderer
You think you're badder than me?
I've never heard of ya!
I'm evil!
I'll fill your cheese balls with weevils!
I poop on people and I blame it on seagulls!

(whisper) It was him...

[He's a nasty bird...!]
I'm invincible
[He's ghastly...!]
I'm unminceable
I'm unwashable
Unrinseable
Like an abandoned school,
I have no principle!

All of you Brazilian birds...
All 80 million birds...!
I'll tell you what I'm going to do...
I'm going to make you...

Shut up now, shut up! It's just me.

I will make you ugly… too…

(Nigel flies away, laughing maniacally)

I was striking suave, ambitious, feet to beak, so birdi-licious
Now I'm vile, I villainous, and vicious, oh, and malicious

I had it all, a TV show, women too
I was tall, over one foot two
Then they got a pretty parakeet to fill my shoes
That's why I am so evil
Why I do what I do

[He was a superstar...!]
So young and vital
[He's nasty...!]
A South American idol
[He's a suspicious bird...!]
Who said that about me?
[A very vicious bird...!]
I'll have you rotisseried!

I was the king of telling novellas
The envy of all the other fellas
Then I was pushed out for a pretty Polly Parakeet from Paraguay they called Petricious...

Common Paraguayan name.

[He's a nasty bird...!]
I'm insidious
[He's ghastly...!]
Oh, I'm hideous!
[He was a real macaw...!]
I'm a cockatoo!
[An obscene bird...!]
Yes that bit's true

I'm a feathery freak
With a beak
A bird murderer
You think you're badder then me?
I've never heard of ya!
I'm evil
I'll fill your cheese balls with weevils
I poop on people and i blame it on seagulls

(whisper) It was him

[He's a nasty bird...!]
I'm invincible
[He's ghastly...!]
I'm unminceable
I'm unwashable
Unrinseable
Like an abandoned school
I have no principle!

All of you Brazilian birds...
All 80 million birds...
I'll tell you what I'm going to do...
I'm going to make you...

Shut up now. Shut up! It's just me.

I will make you ugly... too...

(Nigel laughs maniacally)
"Did you hear how dramatic that was? At the end?"
(more laughing)
