#SeptemberSongs Day 19 – The birds upon the tree

Another song I learned from Jon Boden, apparently dating back to the late 19th century (more info).

I like birdwatching and had been looking for a while for a decent birdy folk song, however most that I found seemed not to be about ornithology at all but instead were elaborate double-entendres! Anyway this one seems innocent enough and it’s a cracking song to sing…

Lyrics: From memory

Takes: 2 (The first time I didn’t put the ‘pop’ shield on the microphone. Techy fail!)
