One day a beautiful bird flew up in the sky But a hunter shot it down and all the children cried The hunter thought he could make so many things Like hats of feathers from all the bird wings The hunter thought people would give him money And he would be rich so he kept killing birds Beautiful Birds, beautiful birds Then he thought he'd get rich by cutting down all the trees From the wood he'd make so many things Out of the limbs and out of the leaves He only cared for himself overcome by greed The hunter thought people would give him money And he would be rich so he kept cutting down trees Beautiful trees, beautiful trees One day the king came to the hunter and asked him why He tried to kill all the beautiful birds in the sky and also tried to cut down all the trees That he shouldn't take anymore then he needs And so now to punish him for all his bad deeds The king makes him plant new trees And go without meat
