The Surinamese Birdman

Singing Bird

The Surinamese birdman

Loves his singing bird more

Than he loves his woman

He is loyal to his caged friend

Takes him everywhere he goes

While the spouse stays at home

For the admiration and envy

Of other birdmen he lives

While his feathered friend

On Sunday mornings

Wins him singing contests

Beating all the other birds

Earning him a lot of respect
