OK, OK. I lied.
This is not really an Igbo nursery rhyme, more an Igbo adjacent one. To get the full experience, switch your Rs and Ls, add extra vowels when things end in consonants (e.g. ‘Market’ to ‘Maketu’), and shorten all long syllables (‘Bird’ becomes ‘Bed’).
And if you remember this rhyme, I’ll know exactly what your peer group (not age) is!
Once I saw a little bird
Flying up, up, up
Then I said, ‘Little bird, will you stop, stop, stop.’
I was going to the window to say ‘How do you do?’
Then it shook its little tail
And away it flew!
