Lonely little loverbird, she looks for love a lotLoveless little loverbird, she finds it where it’s not
Lovelessbird, she needs her love, but why she does not wot
Loveless lonely little bird delivers love for aught

Little bird is still alone although she thinks she’s not
Lovely little bird alone is listless and distraught
Loverbird without a love likes little that she’s got
Liking little loneliness, the loverbird is caught

Learn to like yourself alone you loverbird, unknot
Lease your love less cheaply, dear, and learn to love your lot
Longing pain will lessen if you’ll like the life you’ve got
Lonely little loverbird, reject the things you ought
