strung out in a bright line
Along the big brown river.
Red feathers contrast vividly.
Along the big brown river.

Screaming like a banshee,
they fly in flocks of color,
red feathers contrast vividly.

Giant birds and some smaller
carry rainbows on their back.
They fly in flocks of color.

Traders carry them in a sack,
showing them to greedy buyers,
carry rainbows on their back.

Clouds of Amazon tree top flyers,
captured for feathers and trade;
showing them to greedy buyers.

Slowly the parrot's colors fade
along the big brown river,
captured for feathers and trade,
along the big brown river.
