The Magpie Cry

The magpie cry
The saddest of them all
A cry of mourning
For a day that is done
A cry of mourning
For a night that is dark
A cry of mourning
For a life that once was

The magpie cry
The saddest of all bird cries
Mourning a love that is lost
Mourning a life that has died

The magpie cry
Welcoming the dawn
Saying goodbye to the day

The magpie cries
