My daughter Makani asked me to share this with you.


Birds

I have a black-capped chickadee
in my own backyard
It goes chick-a-dee-dee-dee



There’s also a winter wren
Chick-a-dee-dee-dee



Or was it a northern mockingbird
Chick-a-dee-dee-dee



And a House sparrow too
Chick-a-dee-dee-dee



Don’t you like the brown kiwi bird?
Chick-a-dee-dee-dee



And also the bald eagle
Chick-a-dee-dee-dee



Don’t you just love birds, Chick-a-dee-dee-dee?
Hey, Sweetie
Witchity, witchity
Tea-kettle, Tea-kettle, tea-kettle

Hey, Sweetie
Witchity
Tea-kettle

Chick-a-dee-dee-dee
