There was a little birdie Most of all she enjoyed singing happy songs – about beautiful life, about the bright sun, green grass… She wanted to embrace the whole world! Once upon a time she met another bird They started singing together, made a nest, where some chicks appeared… Two of them? Yes, yes, of course They were learning to fly They had a wonderful free life But then, darkness descended upon earth… A very strong wind took their nest far away, into the land of sand and plane-trees But they survived! They mended their nest, cleaned their feathers and started singing again But then a hawk heard their beautiful song Immediately he came to earth, like a stone He doesn’t like songs, does he? No, he doesn’t He was frightened to hear such a happy song
He saw the nest and decided to ruin it And then…Then daddy bird flew towards the bird He pretended that he’s broken his limb, in order to lead the hawk away from the nest, and then safely come back Like this! Who’s hiding like a bird? You count, I’ll be hiding! No, no! Close your eyes and count slowly! What time is it? Where’s my watch? I’ll bring it! One, two – where are you? Three, four – how much more? Five, six – who is this? Seven, eight – Come to play! Nine, ten – What a game! Sing, sing, my little bird! Don’t listen to anyone The first dwarf came, the second dwarf came, and dwarf the third came! One is telling tales, the other one is dancing dances, yet another one is singing songs! One, two, three, come and see! I’m ready to seek! Oygen, it’s 6 p.m Friedrich, where’s daddy? Friedrich, come here! Oygen! Oygen! Daddy! Daddy! It’s ok. It’s ok. It’s ok.
