I Wish I Was a Little Swallow

I wish I was a little swallow,
I wish that I had wings to fly,
I’d fly away to some dark hollow,
And there I’d pass my troubles by.

But as it is, I am no swallow,
I have no wings with whitch to fly.
So I’ll sit right here in grief and sorrow,
And pass my troubles by.
