Little Willie Wagtail


There’s a little bird that flits and hops as she teases
The magpie that sits under a tree
The cheekiest of birds that there could ever be
Little Willie Wagtail...

With plumage that’s black and belly so white she
Twitters and hops all through the day
Insects and grubs she pecks from the ground
Little Willie Wagtail

Magpies sing, kookaburras laugh
And little Willie Wagtails twitter and chirp
Hopping all around with their cheeky chirping sound
Perched up in a tree then back on the ground

On land and on sea every creature
Runs swims or flies and that’s how it should be
For the earth is their home, as it is for you and me
So little Willie free

Little Willie free
