I've seen, I've seen, I've seen, I've seen
a little bird a-singing
a little bird a-singing.
Sing, sing, little bird,
I promise I'll not throw a stone.

You're a child of mother earth,
that I have come to love
You're a child of mother earth,
that I have come to love

There's a parrot, there's a bower-bird,
there's a humming-bird, save them all.


There's a flycatcher, there's a bluebird
There's a small canary, save them all


All the birds
All the beasts
all the flowers
save them all


Our fish, our rivers,
our lives, our air.
Our Indians, our groves
Nature that I've learned to love (twice)

This song is from the CD Growing a ring o'roses
