There Was a Little Tree
8.  There was a little bird, the prettiest litde bird, The sweetest little bird you ever did see. The bird in the egg, the egg in the nest,
the nest in the leaf, the leaf in the twig, the twig in the branch, the branch in the limb, the limb in the tree, the tree in the ground, And the green grass growing all around, all around, And the green grass growing all around.
9.  There was a little wing, the prettiest little wing, The sweetest little wing you ever did see.
The wing in the bird, the bird in the egg, the egg in the nest, the nest in the leaf, the leaf in the twig, the twig in the branch, the branch in the limb, the limb in the tree, the tree in the ground, And the green grass growing all around, all around, And the green grass growing all around.
10.  There was a little feather, the prettiest little feather, The sweetest little feather you ever did see.
The feather in the wing, the wing in the bird, the bird in the egg, the egg in the nest, the nest in the leaf, the leaf in the twig, the twig in the branch, the branch in the limb, the limb in the tree, the tree in the ground, And the green grass growing all around, all around, And the green grass growing all around.
11.  There was a litde flea, the prettiest little flea, The sweetest little flea you ever did see.
The flea in the feather, the feather in the wing, the wing in the bird, the bird in the egg, the egg in the nest, the nest in the leaf, the leaf in the twig, the twig in the branch, the branch in the limb, the limb in the tree, the tree in the ground, And the green grass growing all around, all around, And the green grass growing all around.
