Oh, little red bird come to my window sill
Been so lonesome, shaking that morning chill
Oh, little red bird open your mouth and say
Been so lonesome, just about flown away

So long now I've been out
In the rain and snow
But winter's come and gone
A little bird told me so

Oh, little blue bird, pearly feather breast
Five cold nickels all I got left
Oh, little blue bird what am I gonna do?
Five cold nickels ain't gonna see me through

So long now I've been out
In the rain and snow
But winter's come and gone
A little bird told me so

Oh, little black bird on my wire line
Dark as trouble in this heart of mine
Poor little black bird sings a worried song
Dark as trouble, till winter's come and gone

So long now I've been out
In the rain and snow
But winter's come and gone
A little bird told me so

So long now I've been out
In the rain and snow
But winter's come and gone
A little bird told me so
