Birds in their nest
My mum sang this to me as a baby/young child and now I sing the same song to my newborn daughter. I believe I know all the words, but I'd like to know who wrote it and/ or where it comes from. Thanks, Tamsin (I'm in UK)
"Birds in their nest, nest up in a tree
Under mummy's wing, safe as safe can be.
Mummy keeps you warm, daddy brings you food,
Safe in your nest, happy little brood
Mind you do not fall, from your nest so high,
You've no feathers yet, so you cannot fly.
When your feathers grow, on some sunny day,
You will learn to fly, chirrup, chirrup away."
