The Flight of Bebo

Bebo was a bird who could not fly He kept flapping his wings 'cause he knew he must try There were two other birds that were laughing at him As he was jumping and flapping up high on a limb It must be so hard to be stuck in a tree Said, those two silly birds That were laughing at me I do not like you get out of my tree Don't you have somewhere to go? Don't you have somewhere to be? Bebo then said let me get back to my endeavor Or, I'll be stuck in this tree forever and ever He knows he's a bird he eats worms and sings He just needs a good breeze to get under his wings Bebo worked hard all week to get into the air Then he started to cry Yelling, this isn't fair With tears down his cheeks Bebo looked at the sky He said, I know I'm a bird so why can't I fly? The wind then spoke out and said, It's not how you try You must climb to the top You must get really high Then open your wings and face into me I will help you find flight just get up there, you'll see Bebo went to the top of his lonely old tree He opened his wings and, waited to see The wind then picked up and, carried him high Bebo was laughing with joy 'cause now he could fly From that day on Bebo was happy with flight He said goodbye to his tree and, then he flew out of sight
