For the Birds (Chanson de la Crane)


For the Birds (aka “Chanson de la Crane”) (Anita Nye, Marshall Barer)

If one toucan can can-can as well as a man can
And two can perform pas de deux
Let us be like two toucans in tutus
What one toucan can do, two can too

Cynthia Crane — live performance at The Metropolitan Room, New York City, accompanied by Paul Greenwood (piano) and Boots Maleson (bass); uploaded on 24 June 2009

Crane says, in her introduction here, that Marshall Barer claimed that the song was written for her. A recording of the song by Crane was released in 2009 on the album I’m Confused, Therefore I Am.
