A Book of Nursery Songs and Rhymes/Nursery Songs/LXVII. THE LITTLE COCK-SPARROW

A little cock-sparrow sat on a high tree,
And he chirrupped and chirrupped so merrily;
He chirrupped, he chirrupped, etc.
A little cock-sparrow sat on a high tree,
And he chirrupped and chirrupped so merrily.
I little boy came with his bow and arrow,
Determined to shoot this little cock-sparrow.
For he's going to make me a nice fat stew,
And his giblets will make me a little pie, too.
'Oh no!' said the sparrow, 'that never will do!
He fluttered his wings and away he flew.
