A little cock sparrow sat on a green tree,
And he chirruped, he chirruped, so merry was he.
A naughty boy came with his wee bow and arrow,
Determined to shoot this little cock sparrow.
"This little cock sparrow shall make me a stew,
And his giblets shall make me a little pie too."
"Oh, no," said the sparrow, "I won't make a stew!"
So he flapped his wings and away he flew.
