She's only a bird in a gilded cage

She's only a bird in a gilded cage

The reference to the painting "The Gilded Cage" is in itself a reference to the song "A bird in a gilded cage" by Harry Von Tizler from the turn of the 20th century. The lyric referenced is:

"She's only a bird in a gilded cage,
A beautiful sight to see.
You may think she's happy and free from care,
She's not, though she seems to be.
'Tis sad when you think of her wasted life
For youth cannot mate with age;
And her beauty was sold
for an old man's gold,
She's a bird in a gilded cage."

Reading that, this seems almost non-sequiter to the 1950's night club environment in which it was probably originally painted.
