Feed The Birds

Album: Mary Poppins Soundtrack (1964)
  • Early each day to the steps of Saint Paul's
    The little old bird woman comes
    In her own special way to the people she calls
    Come, buy my bags full of crumbs

    Come feed the little birds, show them you care
    And you'll be glad if you do
    Their young ones are hungry
    Their nests are so bare
    All it takes is tuppence from you

    Feed the birds, tuppence a bag,
    Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag
    "Feed the birds," that's what she cries
    While overhead, her birds fill the skies

    All around the cathedral the saints and apostles
    Look down as she sells her wares.
    Although you can't see it, you know they are smiling
    Each time someone shows that he cares

    Though her words are simple and few
    Listen, listen, she's calling to you
    "Feed the birds, tuppence a bag
    Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag

    Though her words are simple and few
    Listen, listen, she's calling to you
    "Feed the birds, tuppence a bag
    Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag Writer/s: Richard M. Sherman, Robert B. Sherman
