Track Name: Little Bird
Fly down, fly down
Little bird, come down
and sing a lullaby with me

Lay down, lay down
Little bird, lay down
and won't you bless me with your company

Don't frown, don't frown
Little bird, don't frown
it breaks my heart to see you lost in misery

The wet ground, the wet ground
Little bird, the wet ground
is saturated with the tears I've cried for thee

So get down, get down
Little bird, get down
and shake your tail feathers to the beat

Slow down, slow down
Little bird, slow down
there's no reason for you to rush to your destiny

Cast out, cast out
Little bird, cast out
the demons that seek to destroy your peace

Fly south, fly south
Little bird, fly south
to where the sun shines and hangs like a wreath

to where the sun shines and hangs like a wreath

to where the sun shines and hangs like a wreath
