  • Little bird, little bird, little bird
    What do you hear?
    The clink of morning cheers
    Orange juice concentrate
    Crossword puzzles start to grade
    One across
    Four letter word, it's just not sitting

    Little bird, little bird, little bird
    What do you see?
    A picture perfect scene
    Two toned lawns are manicured
    The gardens wearing haute couture

    It's hiding something
    It's trying too hard
    Hiding something
    It's trying too hard

    Little bird, little bird, little bird
    Where are they now?
    Day time TV lounge
    A carriage clock, a mantle piece
    A family wiped up, j cloth cleaned
    Unsaid, festers in the throws of the sofa

    Little bird, little bird, little bird
    How are you feeling?
    Like helping quarantine
    Pearly whites, touch down smile
    Haps and creases round the eyes

    Tell tale, heart sail
    We smell rats in the kitchen
    Tell tale, heart sail
    We smell rats in the kitchen

    Little bird, little bird, little bird
    What can we do?
    A think tank think rescue
    Simon says, etch a sketch
    Send a golden message only he would get
    Quickly now
    'Cause this is not how it ends

    Little bird, little bird, little bird
    (Little bird, little bird, little bird)
    Well I've got one more question
    (Little bird, little bird, little bird)
    And I swear I'll let it rest
    Well I've just one more question
    (Little bird, little bird, little bird)
    And I swear I'll let it rest

    One more question
    I'll let it rest
    I swear I'll let it rest
    Got one more question
    (And I swear I'll let it rest)
    I've got one more question

    Little bird, little bird, little bird
    Where have you gone? Writer/s: IMOGEN JENNIFER JANE HEAP
