Ashley Chittock – Little Bird
I went fly-fishing with a shellfish
Who told me all of his best tricks
Saying "never crown your king before he's born"
I went sailing with a seagull
Taught me how to shoot an eagle
Saying "my life is a ball, who needs to mourn"
This one's for the little bird
The little bird that can't be heard
I went hiking with a cockroach
Made me hate the taste of hogroast
Saying "that's okay, all the more for me"
I went skiing with a penguin
Told me to chop the toes of my friends
Saying "fair is fair when I get fair for free"
I went on a daytrip with my old man
Told him all the fruits of my plans
Saying "I'll be a star yet, I'll show you all"
I went tripping over a step
But my dad grabbed me by the neck
Saying "I'll be here, don't forget to call"
