The big black crow
The little starling chases the big black crow,
putting on a brave show.
What a brave thing it is to chase that big guy,
who seems the ruler of the skies.
For the big black crow’s got too close to her nest,
and mother starling must do her best
to chase that crow right out of town,
cause these big bad guys ain’t welcome around.
And I wonder what she’d do if the crow suddenly fought back,
probably do a fast ‘back track.’
But for now she’s putting on a very brave show,
trying to chase away that big black crow.
