Once I Saw a Little Bird

Once I Saw a Little Bird is a fun nursery rhyme that was first published in “An Alphabet Of Old FriendsAn Alphabet Of Old Friends” by Walter Crane in 1874.

Often times the rhyme is accompanied by certain actions kids do. For example, during “hop, hop, hop” they will jump, and during “stop, stop, stop” they will freeze.

“Once I Saw a Little Bird” Lyrics

Once I saw a little bird
Come hop, hop, hop;
So I cried, “Little bird,
Will you stop, stop, stop?”

And was going to the window
To say, “How do you do?”
But he shook his little tail,
And far away he flew.
