Chickadee, Chickadee – Talitintti, talitintti

Hello again
chickadee, chickadee,
my city bird,
jumping for joy
on the windowsill
of my kitchen.
Did you come for
a coffee?
Wanna come in?

And another day
chickadee,
chickadee,
I come from the
shower
and indeed
you are

flying
inside there.

I did invite you in,
didn´t I,
or is it
my veggie
burger
you prefer?

Chickadee,
chickadee:
“ My city girl,
my city girl,
open the window,
open the window

and even from

the stony yard
joy flows in.”

**

Terve taas,
talitintti, talitintti,
citylintuni mun,
keittiön
ikkunalaudalla

ilosta pompit.
Tulitkos kahville,
käytkö peremmälle?

Ja sitten
toisena päivänä,

talitintti,
talitintti,

kun mä
suihkusta tuun

sä siellä sisällä
tosiaankin lentelet.
Kutsuaniko noudatit,
vai kasvispurilaistaniko
havittelet?

Talitintti,
talitintti:

“Citytyttöni,
citytyttöni,

avaa ikkuna,
avaa ikkuna,

ja jopa
kiviseltä pihalta

ilo virtaa luo.”
