Out There In The Parkland

Out there in the parkland i hear the pee wee
His distinctive song is familiar to me
A bird that i often do see and do hear
He sings in the parkland every day of the year
The black and white birds known to some as magpie lark
Live in rural paddocks and in the town park
I have even seen them on the city street
Birds anywhere one is likely for to meet
Mudlark, pee wee or magpie lark names they are known by
Of humankind they do not seem very shy
They allow you to come close to them before they do fly
These mostly ground dwelling birds who seldom do travel by sky
Out there in the parkland the pee wee does sing
The songs his name came from many days from the Spring.
