The Magpie Songfacts reports the inspiration for this song came from Orton observing the birds that gathered outside her window, in particular two blue jays that followed her about.

Magpie, magpie, I stand here watching the world go by
I wonder do you ever question why?
Im still here wondering what you knowing
Ive seen more everyday than I could dream
