lyrics

It's your moment, your time
We have asked for your input
You can say whatever you want
For one shining second
You're offered the spotlight
You can choose to take it, or not

You might think you are funny, or being ironic
But it's an old joke we've all heard
And when it comes to it really, when all's said and done
You're still the guy who yelled Freebird

Why did you yell?
Freebird, Freebird, you are the guy who yelled Freebird
Freebird, Freebird, nobody wants to hear Freebird

It's the first thing that comes into everyone's mind
Unless they have something to say
No one is laughing except in disgust
And the band wants you to go away

I know you don't want us to really play Skynyrd
The request is, at this point, absurd
Even if your bros are patting your back
You're still the guy who yelled Freebird

Why did you yell?
Freebird, Freebird, you are the guy who yelled Freebird
Freebird, Freebird, nobody wants to hear Freebird

You don't understand, you see, we're in a band
And we hear that damn joke every day
Did you notice your wife has let go of your hand
And your friends are all backing away?

I'm not saying it's fair, but everyone's thinking
You're a jerk or a prick or a turd
If I leave here tomorrow
You'll still be the guy who yelled Freebird

Why did you yell?
Freebird, Freebird, you are the guy who yelled Freebird
Freebird, Freebird, nobody wants to hear Freebird
