Paintbox The Parrot likes to cruise

on a ship with all the crew.

He keeps the passengers all amused

with the things he likes to do.


This bird likes to chat

and spread the news,

wherever he may fly,

and he perches on

the side of the ship

to watch the boats go by.


Paintbox The Parrot likes to squawk,

and makes the people laugh –

when he tells jokes to everyone,

he’s the best comedian, by half!


This bird repeats all the tales

and tit-bits

he’s heard from people he knows,

so everyone is careful

to keep their secrets close!
