Dance O' Bird Turquoise

Dance o'bird turquoise dance- clouds summit- dance
Yell for your friends- out all to join you- yell
Dance o'bird turquoise- light is dimming-dance
Tell the winds- gently soft be breezing - tell

And now clouds clash- their beats- you to dance- and
Mood- monsoon has set up- to set your mood
And look- your pals all ready in set- and
Good rains - gently unfurling- a sign good

Too good a sign- scenting soil blooming too
All chirrups surround- watchers true than all
Ooh and aah- yes- they are ready to ooh
All is well- o' bird turquoise- for you all

Dance- -wind is blowing- clouds are booming- dance
La la la- taralala - la la la

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
