One Goldfinch is a pleasure to see
on its perch under yonder tree.
Oh, Goldfinch, won't you sing for me,
and flap your wings in the warm summer breeze?
Two Goldfinches feedin' on sunflower seeds.
Go tell your friends there's plenty to eat.
Before you know it, it's a par-ar-ty -
A yellow band on the old Pine tree.
All swoop away with a sudden breeze
but they'll return for the sunflower seeds.
With migration season, they'll be gone.
Enjoy them while they're still around.
