Little woodpecker out my window pane
why you have on you spotty self that little red mane?
Did you flitter by the bird store for that sporty red hat
or did your mama give you that?
It’s pretty good though; you got that little red spot;
makes me appreciate just what you got,
a lively color to brighten this wintry scene,
so by this weary human you now be seen.
Thanks for stopping by, oh little friend of mine;
come, display you red spot any time.
And you, you little sparrow with stripy breast;
I hope you know we’ve given you the best
of bird seed that human money can buy;
we put it out so you’d stop by.
This wintry scene is dreary and cold,
and this man inside be weary and old,
but so glad to share a seed or two
with stripy little critter like you.
Yes, we be so happy to provide
for critters who on the wind can ride,
One day my soul will glide away from here;
will you be there to help me steer?
