Song: Busy Beaks
Sung to the tune of "Alouette"
Steps
Step 1
"Busy Beaks"
 

Busy bird beaks,
Crunching, munching bird beaks.
Busy bird beaks,
Looking for some lunch.

 

Some beaks are long and some are short,
Fat beaks, thin beaks, every sort,
Pecking bugs,
Cracking seeds,
Catching fish,
Nibbling weeds.

 

Oh! Busy bird beaks,
Crunching, munching bird beaks.
Busy bird beaks,
Looking for some lunch.

 

- Jennifer Bové
