The birds' nest

Full Text

1 High in the treetops' leavy bough
The birdies are building a nest;
'Twas God the Father taught them how
To build, ev'ry birdie, his best;
To build, ev'ry birdie, his best,
To build, ev'ry birdie, his best;
'Twas God the Father taught them how
To build, ev'ry birdie, his best.

2 This is the little birdies' nest
They built in the treetop so high,
And while they cuddle down to rest
The leaves sing their lullaby-by;
The leaves sing their lullaby-by.
The leaves sing their lullaby-by;
And while they cuddle down to rest
The leaves sing their lullaby-by.

3 This is the mother bird who brings
The wee little birdies their food;
This is the father bird who sings
And watches all day o'er his brood;
And watches all day o'er his brood,
And watches all day o'er his brood;
This is the father bird who sings
And watches all day o'er his brood.

4 These are the little birds we love,
Who live in the treetop so high,
And He who rules the world above
Looks down on each one from the sky;
Looks down on each one from the sky,
Looks down on each one from the sky;
And He who rules the world above
Looks down on each one from the sky.
