I know why the Caged Bird sings,
She sings the song of her freedom.
Sings for the love, she gained and lost,
Sings for the hope, long forgotten.

Her songs brings tears
Her cries are hard to bear.

I know why the Caged Bird sings.
She sings for her beloved, she had to let go
and for the peace, she’ll never be able to know.

Let the Caged Bird sing,
Let her sing- the song of her sorrow,
her pain in happy melody,
freezes my marrow.

Let the little Bird sing
Let her call out to her love
Let her break the chains
And fly away in evening sun.
