Oh bird of paradise
you strut your stuff
to entice a female

You are magnificent
a king of Saxony

Standard wing
A black-billed sicklebill
you do your thing

Prancing and dancing
to her delight
You waggle and glitter
in morning light

In a display
which few will witness
you show your colors
you prove your fitness
