1.Glad to see you, little bird;
It was your little chirp I heard:
What did you intend to say?
“Give me something this cold day”?
1.很高兴见到你,小鸟;
我听到了你啾啾的叫声:
你想对我说什么?
“在这寒冷的天气里给我点吃的?”

All the crumbs I saved for you.
Don't be frightened—here's a treat:
I will wait and see you eat.

我为你保存了所有的面包屑。
别害怕,我来款待你,

Chirp, and tell me, are they true?
Robbing all the summer long;
Don't you think it very wrong?

唧唧,告诉我,那都是真的吗?

4.Thomas says you steal his wheat;
John complains, his plums you eat—
Choose the ripest for your share,
Never asking whose they are.

What you did so long ago:
There's your breakfast, eat away;
Come to see me every day.
5.但我不想知道,
很久以前你都做过什么;
这是你的早餐,来吃吧,
记得每天来看我。
