Bird Scarer's song
Language: English 
Available translation(s): FRE GER
Shoo all 'er birds you be so black,
When I lay down to have a nap.
Shoo arlo arlo arlo arlo arlo arlo arlo arlo birds.
Hi shoo all 'er birds!

Out of master's ground into Tom Tucker's ground,
Out of Tom Tucker's ground into Luke Coles's ground
Out of Luke Coles's ground into Bill Veater's ground.
Shoo arlo arlo arlo arlo arlo arlo arlo arlo birds.
Ha! Ha!
