Tenement Funster, hello and thank you smile Great to hear you like music and poems about nature too and thank you for your comments smile   This one came easily to me as I was sitting at the computer one day and saw this beautiful Tui bird outside my window, on a tree very close to me. It was fluffing itself up and preening itself right in front of me ....................... (I hope other songs will come to me just as easily as I don't really consider myself as having a natural talent at writing songs)  smile

Hi, I am new to this site and this is my very first attempt and only attempt at writing a song so far.  I play this on my ukulele as I am better on my uke than on a guitar.

BEAUTIFUL   TUI 
   
INTRO – {Slide finger along A string whilst strumming}

[C] Sat watching a Tui in a tree [AM] today
[C] Chirping and talking to [AM] anyone
[C] Sitting proudly on a branch in the [AM] greenery of the tree
[C] Looking down on all as it [AM] perched up high

CHORUS

[E7] Beautiful Tui [A7] bird
[E7] Come sing me a [A7] song
[E7] Come sit beside me in that [A7] tree
[E7] As I watch and try to sing a [A7] long

{Slide finger along A string whilst strumming}

[C] Puffing itself up and cleaning its [AM] wings
[C] Its feathers shine like a [AM] paua shell
[C] Deep beautiful colors that can [AM] only be seen
[C] If you remain still and watch [AM] unseen

CHORUS

{Slide finger along A string whilst strumming}

[C] Flying off the branch as you [AM] leave
[C] Looking for some berries or some [AM} seeds
[C] The nectar of the kowhai flower is [AM] sweet to taste
[C] As you swoop and dive looking in [AM] your haste

CHORUS

{Slide finger along A string whilst strumming}

[C] Sometimes I see you bathing in the [AM] bird bath
[C]Splashing and thrashing your [AM] wings
[C} Shaking and cleaning yourself [AM] as best you can
[C] Ready for another day as you [AM] fly off and soar   

CHORUS

OUTRO – {Slide finger along A string whilst strumming and fade out}


You can listen to me attempting to sing this song on Sound Cloud which is also new to me this year.  I am under the name Kiki Jan.
