No money in the bank have I,
No swanky house, no motor car.
No way with words or stylish clothes,
No servants, yachts or large cigars.
But friendship have I – yes, in full –
With shining eyes and heart of gold.
Within my tiny, feathered breast
My heart is packed with love untold.
My cheery voice is there to greet
Whenever you return back home.
I’m here to spend my life with you.
With me, you’ll never feel alone.
For you’re my family, all I have.
To me you’ve been my lifelong friend.
With soft green feathers and tiny wings,
I’ll love you always, to the end.
