The Bluebird Song

When I was a young thing once on a day
Dreaming under my apple tree
A great flock of blue birds sailing through the sky
Espied my tree as they passed by
And Oh! What a wonderful sight to see
As they settled down to rest in my apple tree
Count them said my Mother. How? Said I.
Out of the window came this reply.

One, you’ll have sorrow
Two, you’ll have joy
Three, get a present
Four, get a boy.
Five, receive silver
Six, receive gold
Seven’s a secret that’s never been told.
Eight, a love letter with promises three
Nine, means my true love’s a true as can be.

Only once in a lifetime, the old folks say
The vision of blue birds will come your way
But, only if you’re dreaming, only if you’re still
Only on an apple on a green hill.
So stop all your worrying and hurrying away—
And take time for dreaming on a sunny day.
Wait for the blue birds and when they come along
Tell your fortune with the blue bird song.

One, you’ll have sorrow
Two, you’ll have joy
Three, get a present
Four, get a boy.
Five, receive silver
Six, receive gold
Seven’s a secret that’s never been told.
Eight, a love letter with promises three
Nine, means my true love’s a true as can be.
