"The Robin"

A sweet little robin one morning in Spring,
Flew into the orchard and stopped there to sing;
His heart was so light and his song was so right,
I asked him what song he was singing tonight.

"Tirileelee, Tirileelee;
Nobody knows but my mate and me:"
Tirileelee, Tirileelee;
Up in the nest with our little birds three."
