Woodpecker Song Lyrics

Artist: Glenn Miller

The Woodpecker Song
Glenn Miller
(Reginella Campagnola)
(E. Di Lazzaro)

He's up each morning bright and early
To wake up all the neighborhood
To bring to ev'ry boy and girlie
His happy serenade on wood.

Hear him pickin' out a melody
Peck, peck, peckin' at the same old tree.
He's as happy as a bumble bee
All day long.

To serenade your lady
Just find a tree that's shady
And when you hear that tick-a-tick-tick, tick-a-tick-tick
Sing right along.

Come on and try his rhythm
And let your hearts beat with 'im
Just listen to that tick-a-tick-tick, tick-a-tick-tick
Happy little Woodpecker Song.

Thank you for the words, I'm 80 years old and I was just thinking
about singing that song while we
would be riding along in the car
going on a vacation. I remembered
most of the words but was happy
to find it here. Thank you.

My mom who was born in 1933 used to sing this to me when I was a child to wake me up for school in the morning. I just gave birth to a little girl and I wanted to make sure that I had the words correctly so that i could sing it to my daughter Alicia. My mother passed away back in 2000 and so Iam sure that she would be happy to know that the song she sang to me will now be passed along to her name sake and grand-daughter.
Thank you again,

This was the first piece of sheet music my mother bought me. On my tenth birthday. It changed my life as I started buying sheet music from then on. No more dull piano lessons. But I can't remember the tune.

My mother who is 88 asked me today if I could find the words to this song. She remembered the tune, but couldn't remember all the words. Thanks.

My sister learned this song when she was in 1st grade at Harmony school in Atoka County, OK. I was 4 years old then and have sung it since. Sang it to all my children (3) and have taped it so they will always remember it. Didn't do too much good as none of them seem to care about it. I, however, love it still.

It is amazing that you can find anything on line. My mom who passed away in 2002 gave me a love for music, singing me to sleep every night. This was one of the regulars. I was singing what I could remember to my girls and wanted to learn the whole thing again.....Thank you

My sister, PeggyFinn, and I sang this for a talent contest at the Annual Bonfire and Fireworks on July 4, 1940 in Brighton/Allston, she got a baseball signed by Ted Williams and mine was signed by Joe Cronin.

My Grandfather used to sing this with me and my cousin, when I was only 7 and my cousin was 3. That's how I learned to enjoy singing. My Grandfather passed away about 7 years ago. Glad to have found the words here.

Visiting my twin grand daughters in Delhi about six years old, they loved the song and wanted to learn it. I was happy to be able to confirm the words. Thanks,

Yes I remember the words by heart. My high school singing sessions in India. What I would love is to have some easy guitar chords or/and piano notes for the song. Can anyone help?
