The Captured Bird

Traditional Russian
Written by: Unknown, Copyright: Unknown

Pretty bird, I've got you now,
Though you're quick and clever,
You flew right into my net,
Now you're mine for ever.

Oh what good am I to you?
Let me go I pray you,
Let me fly, and with sweet song,
I shall then repay you.

Pretty bird, I'll give to you
Sugarplums and candy,
I'll always care for you.
Life will be so dandy.

You may think you love me well,
But you'll bring me sorrow,
If I ate your sugarplums,
I would die tomorrow.
