"One Little Brown Bird"


       
 
1.
One little brown bird, up and down he flew,
Along came another one and that made two.
 
       
 
2.
Two little brown birds, sitting on a tree,
Along came another one and that made three.
 
       
  3. Three little brown birds, then up came one more,
What's all the noise about? That made four.
 
       
  4. Four little brown birds, all alive, alive,
Along came another one and that made five.
 
       
  5. Five little brown birds, sitting on some sticks,
Along came another one and that made six.
 
       
  6. Six little brown birds, flying up to heaven,
Along came another one and that made seven.
 
       
  7. Seven little brown birds, sitting on a gate,
Along came another one and that made eight.
 
       
  8. Eight little brown birds sat on mother's line,
Along came another one and that made nine.
 
       
  9. Nine little brown birds saw a lot of men,
So home they flew to father, and that made ten.
