"Little Bird, Little Bird" is also called "Fly Through My Window". It's similar to the song "Bluebird, Bluebird"...

Little Bird, Little Bird - American Children's Songs - The USA - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World, Intro Image


Little bird, little bird fly through my window,
Little bird, little bird fly through my window,
Little bird, little bird fly through my window,
And buy molasses candy.

Fly through my window, my sugar lump,
Fly through my window, my sugar lump,
And buy molasses candy.

Blue bird, blue bird fly through my window,
Blue bird, blue bird fly through my window,
Blue bird, blue bird fly through my window,
And buy molasses candy.

Fly through my window, my sugar lump,
Fly through my window, my sugar lump,
And buy molasses candy.

Game Instructions

Children stand in a circle holding hands high up in arches (to form the "windows" in the song). One kid is the Little Bird who flies in and out of the arches or "windows". During the second verse, the "bird" chooses another child by patting him/her on the shoulder. The second kid then becomes the "bird" who flies through the window.

Comments

Note: The rendition of Little Bird by Elizabeth Mitchell was recently used on an episode of Futurama.
