lyrics

Blackbirds and Thrushes

If I could sing like the blackbirds and thrushes
I’d sing to you from the highest bough
If I could sing from the blackbirds and thrushes
I’d sing a fine song and I’d sing it loud

B. If I could run like the hare on the mountain
I’d run to you from my heathery moor
If I could run like the hare on the mountain
I’d run straight down to be at your door

If I could swim like the fish in the water
I’d swim the rivers and the oceans wide
If I could swim like the fish in the water
I’d leap any foss to be at your side

If I could dance like the rushes a-growing
I’d dance all day in the summer breeze
If I could dance like the rushes a-growing
I’d dance for you where’ere you may be

So I’ll sing out with the blackbirds and thrushes
I’ll run o’er the mountain with the wild hare
I’ll dance all day with the rattles and rushes
And I’ll swim the rivers and oceans to have you near

And where’ere you be you will find me there
