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.

Refrain
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.

Refrain

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

Refrain

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

Refrain

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