Ah bide in the woods, it’s a guid place tae be,
Ah flit intae the city tae see whit ah can see,
Ah’ll be buzzin roon the skies, chasin wee kimmers for ma tea

When ah’m flittin roon the big buildins, ah’ll feel nae pity,
Fur ma next bit ay prey, that ah’m gonnae scoop up frae above.
A wee sparra, a craw or even a dove.

Best ay the Scottish hunters, ah never fail tae get ma denner.
Ma big yella een will be watchin ye,
It’s fur the best if ye dinnae mess wi me.
