A lullaby for a bird

peanut baby bird
I wrote a song for Peanut, my 27 year old Cockatiel. After all this time, I am happy to have a lullaby to sing to her before bed. Knowing how many of us have close bonds with animals we love, I thought I would share it with you.

Oh Baby Bird(Peanut’s Lullaby)
by Nissa Newton

Oh Baby Bird, stick around a while.
There’s still so much to learn and you help me smile.
Through the sun and the rain, through happiness and pain.

When I was young, I was busy with my life.
I joined the Army and became a wife.
But you were there for me, anytime I needed you.

Life is simple for a bird it’s ’bout getting and givin’ love in return
When life gets crazy, your love saves me

Oh Baby Bird, stick around a while.
There’s still so much to learn and you help me smile.
Through the sun and the rain, through happiness and pain.

When the time comes to say goodbye,
There’ll be no lil’ birdie to catch the tears from my eyes.
But I will carry you, forever in my heart,

Oh Baby Bird, stick around a while.
There’s still so much to learn and you help me smile.
Through the sun and the rain, through happiness and pain.

Through the sun and the rain, through our happiness and pain
Oh baby bird….
