Birds in the Tree
“Birds in the Tree,” Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 241
1. We will find a little nest
In the branches of a tree.
Let us count the eggs inside;
There are one, two, three.
2. Mother bird sits on the nest
To hatch the eggs, all three.
Father bird flies round and round
To guard his family.
Nest: Cup hands together.
Tree: Hold arms up rounded over head.
One, two, three: Hold up one, two, and three fingers.
Sits on the nest: Cup left hand; place right hand on top.
Flies: Move arms in flying motion.
