Let's All Sing Like The Birdie's Sing


I'm not quite sure what made this song pop into my head
since I haven't heard it in probably 40 years. haha.
I think we used to sing it in grade school!
Was probably played on a record player, too!

And...isn't Mr. Finch lovely?  He deserved 3 photos today!

  3. I've never heard that song. Mr. Finch is beautiful against the snow.
    Hope you're staying warm and safe there. We have a snow day tomorrow. Campus is closed due to snow and cold.

    1. We're good...the power is on, we have groceries...couldn't ask for anything more. School isn't cancelled as of yet, but I expect it to be. We're supposed to be covered in ice and sub zero temps. The Mr. said not to even bother packing lunches! ha.
      Enjoy your snow day! Maybe you'll have one Tuesday, too! I don't think it will be warmer by then.

  4. LOL Just heard the birdie song ROFL. Why am I rolling on the floor? I was listening to Mr Ludwig Van Beethoven's Symphony No 3 and switched him off to listen to your birdie song LOL. I don't think Beethoven would be too impressed and I rather think for once he might be glad he was deaf!! LOL. However I stayed the course for all the 2mins 37secs with no lasting damage. Charming little 'ditti' actually.
    But we have our own little birdie song dating back to 1959 when Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson entered the Eurovision Song Contest. It is DREADFUL, far worse than yours. If you want to see it here is the URL, but don'say I didn't warn you!! Imagine if they performed that today!! The mind boggles.

    1. It is dreadful, isn't it? But it's reminiscent of my childhood, so you will have to endure. :) We're staying warm...another snow day for the boys so we'll continue to hibernate! :)

      Delete
    2. Endure for you? That is not really a hardship. Besides, I cheated and didn't listen to the entire torment. (smiling) Mr. Bluelight takes the prize with his, though. That is bloody horrid! What screeching!

      Delete
    3. I and Mr. Bluelights completely agree with you! ha.

  10. Yep, when I read the title, the song just popped into my head too. I wish really helpful stuff would come to mind that quick, like passwords, pin numbers and where the car keys ended up! Beautiful photos, Betsy!

  11. You have quite a choir now singing "Lets all sing like the birdies sing"....I can't remember how long it's been since I heard it...but looking at the record and record player you know it was from different area.

    I've never seen such beautiful birds as your finches. God really created something marvelous when he painted their little red chests.

    1. It obviously isn't a song that lived through to the next generations. haha.

      Those finches are the sweetest things...quite small. The red really pops against the snow right now!
