I wrote this song to honor Peanut (2985-2015). When Peanut was still alive, I would actually sing this song to her and she would tilt her head to the side and listen intently.

Birdie Lullaby

by Nissa Newton

Oh Baby Bird, stick around a while.
There’s still so much to learn and you help me smile.
Through the sun and the rain, through the happiness and pain.

I was young when you came into my life,
Sweet baby bird, making every day bright.
You were there for me, anytime I needed you.

Life is simple for a bird.
It’s about getting and giving love in return.
When life gets crazy, your love saves me.
Why don’t you stay a little longer with me?

Oh Baby Bird, stick around a while.
There’s still so much to learn and you help me smile.
Through the sun and the rain, through the happiness and pain.

When the time comes to say goodbye,
There’ll be no little birdie to catch the tears from my eyes
But I will carry you, Forever in my heart!

Oh Baby Bird, stick around a while.
There’s still so much to learn and you help me smile.
Through the sun and the rain, through happiness and pain.

Why don’t you stay a little longer with me?
