Subject(s): Jays

The jay is a jovial bird—heigh-ho!
He chatters all day
In a frolicsome way
With the murmuring breezes that blow—heigh-ho!
Hear him noisily call
From a redwood tree tall
To his mate in the opposite tree—heigh-ho!
Saying: "How do you do?"
As his top-knot of blue
Is raised as polite as can be—heigh-ho!
O impudent jay,
With your plumage so gay,
And your manners so jaunty and free—heigh-ho!
How little you guessed
When you robbed the wren's nest,
That any stray fellow would see—heigh-ho!
