HAVE YOU SEEN MY DICKY BIRD?
 
div
 
Mary married Richard Bird, one day, on the sly
People called him 'Dicky Bird' - he was so fly
When upon the honeymoon up to town they came
Then Mister Bird hopped away, oh what a shame
Said Mary to a p'liceman, 'I'm in such a plight
I don't know what I'll do without my Dicky Bird tonight.'

Chorus: 'Have you seen my Dicky Bird?
Oh! I must have been a silly silly
To take him all down Piccadilly
For he flapped his wings and flew
Now I'm wondering where he's gone
But you're sure to know my Dicky Bird
Because he's got check trousers on.'


Mary, for her hubby dear, searched round everywhere
Met a lot of ladybirds, by Leicester square
As she eyed their gorgeous plumes, that girl sighed, 'Oh dear
I wonder if Dicky Bird's been cooing round here?'
'I'm much afraid,' said Mary, 'His love was too frail
As he was fresh, I wish I'd put some salt upon his tail.'

Chorus: 'Have you seen my Dicky Bird?
Oh! I must have been a silly silly
To take him all down Piccadilly
For he flapped his wings and flew
Now I'm wondering where he's gone
But you're sure to know my Dicky Bird
Because he's got check trousers on.'


Later on, to Scotland Yard, she a visit paid
Told them that Mister Bird was lost, stolen, or strayed
'Counrty birds are tempted so, up in town alack
But, oh! won't I clip his wings when he comes back
'I'm going home,' said Mary, 'No use saying here
A honeymoon's no use to me without my Dicky dear.'

Chorus: 'Have you seen my Dicky Bird?
Oh! I must have been a silly silly
To take him all down Piccadilly
For he flapped his wings and flew
Now I'm wondering where he's gone
But you're sure to know my Dicky Bird
Because he's got check trousers on.'
