The Educated Love Bird

(Not translated from the Italian)
by Peter Newell

I teach-a da bird an’ a blow-a da ring,
An’ ‘e fly into eet an’ ‘e roost an’ ‘e sing!
An’ whn-a da ring ‘eet is not-a in sight
Da bird ‘e just spread-a ‘ees wing an’ make flight.

From The Metropolitan Magazine, vol. 22, no. 6, September 1905, p. 716.
