w:2.Hi said the black-bird si-tting on~a chair,_ once I cour-ted~a la-dy fair
w:3.Hi said the wood-pecker si-tting on~a fence,_ once I cour-ted~a hand-some wench
w:4.Hi said the ro-bin as * he flew, when I was young * I had two
w:5.Hoot said the owl with eyes * so bright, a lone-some day, a lone-some night

w:1.the~rea-son that I fly by night,_ it's~be-cause I lost my heart's de-light
w:2.she got fickle and turned her back,_ and ever since then I'm dressed in black
w:3.she got scared and from me fled,_ and ever since then my head's been red
w:4.if~one wouldn't love me~the o-ther would,_ * don't you think my no-tion's good
w:5.thought I heard a pretty gal say,_ * court all night and sleep all day
w:6.court her night and court her day,_ * never give~her time to say your nay
w:7.she got saucy and wanted to go,_ I'd add the other string to my bows
