“Surfin’ Bird” is a song performed by American surf rock band the Trashmen, containing the repetitive lyric “the bird is the word”. It has been covered many times. It is a combination of two R&B hits by the Rivingtons: “Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow” and “The Bird’s the Word”.

The song was released as a single in 1963 and reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Trashmen also recorded an album named after the track, released two months later.
