The Doctor Bird - Swallow Tailed Humming Bird

Chi Chi Bud Oh!!

A Chi Chi bud Oh!  – A flock of birds

On Friday 20th March, our last day of school, the Choir and Year 4,5,6  sang ‘Chi chi Bud Oh’ – a traditional song, in Jamaican creole. This call and response song is about the birds of Jamaica, and uses their regional names. The children’s singing was accompanied by Pablo on drum kit, Eoghan on trumpet and Miss Sally playing the piano. Have a listen to the recording and see if you can sing along? At the end you can hear children suggesting names of some other birds they know. What birds do you know?

Enjoy!!!

Lyrics –  Chi Chi Bud Oh!

A chi chi bud oh

Some of dem a holla, some a ball

Chi chi bud oh

Some of dem a holla, some a ball

Chi chi bud oh

 

Some a black bird

Some a grass bird

Some a white bird

Some a beeny bird

 

Chi chi bud oh

Chi chi bud oh

 

Some a lagga-head

An a chickman chick

Some a John crow

An a docta bird

 

Hi!

Doctor bird a cunning bird,

Him build him nest a low limb

I never shoot him ah only adore him,

A bud oh!

 

Chi chi bud oh

Chi chi bud oh

Doctor bird a cunning bird,

Him build him nest a low limb

I never shoot him ah only adore him,

A bud oh!

 

Chi chi bud oh

Chi chi bud oh
