A beautiful quail on a branch near by,

she’s perched there crying “chi-ca-go”.

while there’s a hawk circling the sky,

she cries out once more “chi-ca-go”.

 

Across the way is her handsome mate,

to her nervously  he’s saying  “be-care-ful”.

“Pit-pit” he calls at an alarming rate,

Then again he says to her “be-care-ful”.

 

A great grey chest takes to the air,

shortly she follows crying “chi-ca-go”.

Grasped in talons, one from the pair,

she repeatedly screeches “chi-ca-go”.

 

Frightened and heartbroken she mourns,

crying out to him constantly, “where’d-ya-go”.

Into the rose bush with prickly thorns,

taking cover as she’s hiccuping  “where’d-ya-go”.
