"The Green Leafy Tree"


       
   
1.
We went to the meadow and what did we see?
A green leafy tree.
       
   
2.
We went to the meadow and what did we see?
A nest in the tree, the green leafy tree
       
    3. We went to the meadow and what did we see?
Oh! speckled blue eggs in the nest in the tree,
The green leafy tree.
       
    4. We went to the meadow and what did we see?
Oh, three baby birds from the specked blue eggs,
The eggs in the nest and nest in the tree,
The green leafy tree.
       
    5. We went to the meadow and what did we see?
We saw the birds flying, sweet music we heard,
For out came a song from each little bird,
The birds from the eggs in the nest in the tree,
The green leafy tree.
