lyrics

little bird, little bird, tell me what you've seen
what's out there in the great wide world, tell me where you've been

mama, oh mama, I've been traveling far
I've been wandering over the ocean, under the moon and starts

little bird, little bird, what do the people say
did they greet you tenderly as you went on your way

mama, oh mama, some of them were kind
but some were carrying too much pain to give me any mind

oh, my sweet little bird, tell me about your heart
how did it fare on the winding road did you leave behind a part

mama, oh mama, my heart is sad and worn
it's all in pieces out in the world, left me here alone  

little bird, little bird, what will you do now
will you take what you have learned and write your story down

mama, oh mama, I’ll take these things I know
I will tell them over again, they’re with me as I go
