PEACH BLOSSOM'S SONG
THE EMPEROR'S SONG
(Sung by Peach Blossom)
(Sung by the Emperor)




Hear the little bird now, hear the little bird.
Its melody flows like a river of pearls.
Have you ever heard now, have you ever heard
a more delightful sound in the whole wide world?
It’s more than a tweet-tweet-tweeting it’s repeating.
It’s more than a twit-twit-twitching, it’s bewitching.
It’s a chirp-chirp, tweedle-tweedle, peep-peep, jolly good song.

Hear the little bird now, hear the little bird.
singing us to peace with its warbling word.
Have you ever heard now, have you ever heard
a more enchanting sound in the whole wide world?
It's more than a peep-peep-peeping, it's quite sweeping.
It's more than a chip-chip-chipping, it's quite gripping.
It’s a chirp-chirp, tweedle-tweedle, peep-peep, jolly good song.

As I walk through the woods each day
what do you think that I hear?
A song that takes me far away,
a lullaby in my ear.

It’s the nightingale - nightingale - 
singing out with joy.
Hear it serenade - serenade
every girl and boy.

What bird is this who skips and darts
high up in the trees?
What sound is this that soothes my heart?
It’s the song of the dear Chinese...
nightingale - nightingale -
it wants to be our friend.
Hear its serenade - serenade -
all you ladies and gentlemen.
