Bird Songs


Two little ladybirds sitting on a daisy.

One named Sue

One named Maisy.

Fly away Sue,

fly away Maisy.

Come back Sue,

come back Maisy.


Little birdie in your nest.

Little birdie it’s time to rest.

When the sun comes out to play.

Little birdie – fly away!


Tune: I’m a Little Teapot

I’m a little birdie

Cute and fat.

I eat worms.

I don’t like cats.

When I see a cat come out to play,

I spread my wings,

And I fly away!


Robin in the rain such a saucy fellow.
Robin in the rain mind your spots of yellow.
Running through the garden on your nimble feet
Digging for your dinner with your long, strong beak.
Robin in the rain you don’t mind the weather showers
Always make you gay
But the worms are wishing you would stay at home
Robin on a rainy day


Two Little Blue Birds
Traditional Fingerplay

Two little blue birds
Sitting on a hill
One named Jack
One named Jill
Fly away Jack
Fly away Jill
Come back Jack
Come back Jill

(Substitute different colors for the birds)
