(Folk song)

Way up in the sky the little birds fly
While down in their nest the baby birds rest
With a wing on the left, and a wing on the right
The sweet little birdies sleep all through the night.
Shhh, they’re sleeping!
The bright sun comes up, the dew falls away,
“Good morning, good morning!” the little birds say.
