VP_001357 Verse 1Two sweet little children one six and one seven Were feeding their birdie one day, Their little hearts yearned for their Mamma who'd gone, To that heavenly home far away, Now let's write a letter and tie it they said, To birdie and send her up high, And when Mamma reads it she'll surely come home," So birdie, to heaven please fly. Chorus 1Fly away birdie to heaven. Find our dear Mamma there, Tell her that we are so lonely, Papa is sighing and baby is crying, And tell her tomorrow's my birthday, She will know that I'm seven, Tell her to come to our party, So give her this message in heaven. Verse 2Two small curly heads lying close side by side, Two little forms closely entwined, Dreamed of their mother who watched from above, Their sweet little faces all smiles, They dreamed they saw birdie give Mamma the note, And heard her say "I will be there," My spirit is watching you both day by day, I'm with you, dear hearts ev'ry where.
