Nature! Nature! Let’s talk about it,
Come down let’s have a sit,
You’re home to birds of prey,
But people think you’re dull and grey
But why? But why? But why?
Let’s reach tall and high,
Not all of us love it,
But we have it bit by bit
Second to none,
You’re the Number One,
You have sticks for great forts
And you have birds and their little snorts
Great camping spot,
If you want to be in the bush on the dot
I suggest this spot!
Do a good deed,
The rewards is birds to feed
Want a camp fire?
Don’t hire! Go to the bush,
And listen to the wind whoosh
Want bricks? No! Not bricks, we have even better – sticks,
We have some cute chicks,
