Way up in the sky (jump high)
The little birds fly (flap arms)
While down in the nest (form nest with arms)
The little birds rest (hands next to head like napping)
Shhh! They’re sleeping. (stage whisper shh! say quietly they’re sleeping)
With a wing on the left (fold left arm under)
And a wing on the right (fold right arm under)
The little birds sleep (hands next to head like napping)
All through the night.
Shhh! They’re sleeping. (stage whisper “shh!, they’re sleeping”)
The BRIGHT SUN COMES UP! (Yell it out and jump high with arms above head) The dew goes away (hands like banging on a keyboard)
Good morning, good morning, the little birds say (raise arms up and down)20
Note: This is a good song for morning wake up in place of reveille.
