The Sparrow - Lyrics

I'm only a poor little sparrow (ah)
No colourful feathers have I (it's a shame)
I can't even sing (ah) when I'm nesting in spring (ah)
And the turnips don't grow very high (it's a shame)

Most sparrows I know are so cheeky (that's right)
In fact they're incredibly brave (so brave)
But to me that's not true (ah) all I ever do (ah)
Is worry myself to the grave (it's a shame)

She's only a poor little sparrow
No colourful feathers has she
She can't even sing when she's nesting in spring
And the turnips don't grow very high

Whenever I try to be helpful (you're not)
I seem to do something that's wrong (that's right)
Only one day last week (yes) I trapped someone's beak (yes)
And now it's as broad as it's long (oh poor thing)

Whenever I'm talking I stutter (pardon?)
And shake every feather with fright (you what?)
My knees start to knock as the birds start to mock
And I'm frightened to death of the night (scaredy cat)

I once had a boyfriend called Bertie (ooh)
He said I was pretty as three (ah, ah)
He built me a nest (yes) gave me all of his best (yes)
Then tripped up and fell off the tree (ha, ha, ha)

She's only a poor little sparrow
No colourful feathers has she
She can't even sing when she's nesting in spring
And the turnips don't grow very high

She's only a poor little sparrow
No colourful feathers has she
She can't even sing when she's nesting in spring
And the turnips don't grow very high.
