avast my hearty
better shiver your what’s-it
the buccaneering bower birds have come

show me your apple trees

yo-ho a party
has come down a-raider-ing
so beat the autumn bower bird drum

take me to your vegetables

they are hungry
they are twenty
they are voracious
they are forty
they are insatiable
they’re one hundred

bower birds have come
to raid your garden
every bit of green is gold

was that a seedling

hop hop stand
then swash-a-bit and buckle
the bower birds have come

ha ha my little cabbage
