Five blue birds sitting in a tree,
The first bird said, “Look what I see.”
The second bird said, “Look what I see.”
The third bird said, “Their feathers are so fine.”
The fourth bird said, “Quick, let’s fly away!”
The fifth bird said, “No, let’s all stay.”
Then a black bird said, “Let’s win!”
“Join us, and we’ll be ten.”
Well, all the birds flew together
In all kinds of weather.
Through the blue sky,
All ten would fly.
Till own brith summer day,
the blue birds in the tree did stay.
The black birds kept flying in line,
Leaving their new friends to pine.
Once again they were five and five!
