Why won’t you spread your wings and fly into the night,

Under the stars, above the woodlands, lit by moonlight?”

“I can’t do it alone, I’m afraid to fly,

I’m scared of the height if I fly up to the sky”

Verse 3

Then Big Owl took Little Owl under his wing and said,

“Little Owl I will keep you safe, you will never have to be alone,

And when you have to be brave, and when you have to be strong,

Little Owl you know I’m always by your side because that’s where I belong”

Why won’t you spread your wings and fly into the night,

Under the stars, above the woodlands, lit by moonlight?”

I’m scared of the dark if I fly into the night”

“Little Owl I will keep you safe, you will never have to be alone,

Little Owl you know I’m always by your side because that’s where I belong”

I’m scared of the trees if I fly out of my nest”

“Little Owl I will keep you safe, you will never have to be alone,

Little Owl you know I’m always by your side because that’s where I belong”

Verse 10

Then little owl looked up at big owl and said,

“I can’t do it alone, I’m afraid to fly,

But with you by my side I’ll fly up to the sky,

With you by my side I’ll fly into the dark,

With you by my side I’ll fly to the trees in the park”.

Then with Big Owl always in his sight, Little Owl took flight into the night……
