the magpie lyrics – donovan

the magpie is a most ill*strious bird
dwells in a diamond tree
one brings sorrow and one brings joy
sorry and joy for me

the magpie is a most royal bird
black and blue as night
i would that i had feathers three
black and blue and white

i saw the gentle magpie bird
in the dusky yestereve
one brings sorrow and one brings joy
sorrow and joy for me…
sorrow and joy for me…
