Little bird    (video)

 

    Em - C     G      - G -  D

                   Oh !

 

   Em                                       - C

1.       We take this bird in         with it's broken leg,

G                           - G          D

    we can nurse it,       she said.

Em                                        C

    Come inside for a little lie down with me,

G                                   - G                                D

    and if you fall asleep,      it wouldn’t be the worst thing.

 

                           C                                                 G          - G - D

    And when I wake up her make up is on my shoulder,

                                C                                                     D           - B7

    and tell me, if I lie down, will you stay now, let me hold you.

 

            Em                                             C

And if I kiss you, will your mouth read this truth,

                        G                                                D

darling, how I miss you, strawberries taste like lips do.

                           Em                                   C

And it's not complete yet, mustn't get our feet wet,

                                 G                      G            - D

cause that leads to regret diving in too soon,

            Am                     C                Em  - C                G     - D

and I'll owe it all to you, oh, my little bird,       my little bird.

 

   Em                          - C

2.     Take a walk out        in the morning dew,

G                                - G                          D

    we could lay down,       so I'm next to you.

Em                                     C

    Come inside for a little homemade tea,

G                                    - G                            D

    if you fall asleep then         at least you're next to me.

 

                   Em                    C                                                  G   - G - D

    And if I wake her, she'll say, "It's late, love," go back to sleep,

                             Em                  C

    uncovered by nature I need safe now,

                                C                             D           - B7

    and I need this oak tree with you beside me.

 

            Em                                            C

But if I kiss you, will your mouth read this truth,

                        G                                                D

darling, how I miss you, strawberries taste like lips do.

                           Em                                   C

And it's not complete yet, mustn't get our feet wet,

                                 G                      G            - D

cause that leads to regret diving in too soon,

            Am                      C  - D             Em  - C                G     - D

and I'll owe it all to you, oh,      my little bird,       my little bird.

 

                  Em  - C                G    - D

+  My little bird,       my little bird.

 

               Am                            C

+  And of all these things I'm sure of,

          Em                           G

    I'm not quite certain of your love.

             Am                                   C

    You make me scream, then I made you cry,

                Em                                     D

    when I left that little bird with it's broken leg to die.

 

+  CHORUS   + Whoah !

 

                  Em  - C                G    - D                           C

+  My little bird,       my little bird,        you're my little bird.
