Cassowary - Steel Engraving Looks Aren't Everything

When I got up in the morning I realized
It's not gonna be a get-up-in-the-air day.
A glance in a mirror I know doesn't lie
Says my beak is too big and it's not a good hair day.

How the kids got stripes instead of dots, I don't know -
At least they're the type to keep warm when it snows.
I can't find my scarf and that's a worry,
But what can you do when you're a cassowary?
