Hummingbird - a simple children's song

Perhaps my simplest song yet, Hummingbird. It is based on a true story. The music doesn't sound like much, like I said it sounds like a simple children's song. 

There are three files: MIDI, PDF and MP3. It is in Eb major (three flats: Eb Ab Bb) most of it is based on simple repetitive Eb F ostinato variations.

Lyrics follow:


Precious baby hummingbird
Lying on the ground
Fallen from a nest up high
Clicking fear out loud

Frantic Momma hummingbird
Where has baby gone?
Fallen from a nest up high
No where to be found

A kind person rescues me
saves the baby bird
Nurses baby back to health
So it can fly on

Precious baby hummingbird
Flying with its mom
Both click thank yous for my help
then they fly on
