Sweet little nightingale

Come,
Sit on my shoulder
Oh my sweet little nightingale!
And while I play
Your favorite tune
Chirp, tweedle
"Hurray! Its my day."
Take a swing
With me, dance
Tonight is gala
While I take my favorite stance.
Say "Oo Lala!"
Flap your wings
Once, twice
Make a wish
When I close your eyes,
To the Heavens, and above
And the lords will conspire
To bless you with love
And to enliven your desire
Oh my sweet little nightingale!







(I composed this  as  birthday message to someone very dear to me.)

Could visualise the entire poem!
Very sweet
"ooh lala " was not nice though :P

Thank you and why not ooh lala? Too informal or degrading it is?
