The Birds In the Trees
(Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring)
Based on Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring by Johann Sebastian Bach Adapted by Eric Litwin and Michael Levine

Lyrics:

 

The birds in the trees like to sing in the Spring,
They go la la la la, la la la la.
The birds in the trees like to sing in the Spring,
They go la la la la, la la la la.

The cows in the barn like to sing in the Spring. 
They go moo moo moo moo, moo moo moo moo.
The cows in the barn like to sing in the Spring. 
They go moo moo moo moo, moo moo moo moo.
