Two Little Blackbirds


Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill,
One named Jack, the other named Jill.
Fly away Jack; fly away, Jill.
Come back Jack, come back, Jill.

Two little blackbirds sitting on a cloud.
One named quiet, the other named loud.
Fly away quiet, fly away loud.
Come back quiet, come back loud.

Two little blackbirds sitting on the snow
One named fast, the other named slow.
Fly away fast, fly away slow.
Come back fast, come back slow.
