Little whistle
little dartaway
I can hardly hear you
What’s that you say?

follow me follow me

Little pepperpot
little run-a-lot
all a-fluttering
all a-scurrying

just over here just over here
this way please this way please
oh look I’m hurting

Little feathers
little broken wing
over-here no over-here
leading and retreating

follow me follow me
oh no I have no family

all salt and sand
all salt and sand
smaller than my clumsy hand

follow me follow me
