The Parakeet Tweet
words by Roland and Madeline Hess; music by Roland Hess

My owner thinks I'm kind of lame.
He doesn't think I know any games,
But when he covers my cage at night
I turn on the birdie party light...

chorus:
I do the parakeet tweet, tweet, tweet,
I do the parakeet tweet, tweet, tweet,
I do the parakeet tweet, tweet, tweet,
I move my birdie feet
Repeat

My owner thinks I'm a boring bird.
I never squawk, I don't say a word,
But when he leaves the house for the day
All my bird friends come over to play...

Chorus

We wiggle our feathers and flap our wings.
We open our beaks and we start to sing.
Kick up your feet there's nothing to fear;
All our birdie friends will soon be here!

Chorus
