What did the jaybird say?
Jaybird say: “Jay jay jay, Jay jay jay, Jay jay jay,”
That is what he say.

2. …mockingbird… “Whee dee dee…”

3. …chee-dee… “Chee dee dee…”

4. …old crow… “craw craw craw…”

5. …old hawk… “chick chick chick…”

6. …partridge… “bob bob white…”

7. …old owl… “whoo whoo whoo…”

  1. Hi Beth,
    I’d like to use to use “This is What He Say” in a program but I can’t find the song anywhere besides your website. Do you know where the folk song originated?
    Thank you!

    1. Great question! I found the song in a Silver Burdett Early Childhood Teacher Edition, 1981, p. 150. They quoted the source from the Library of Congress. I put the link under “See also.” 🙂
