He's up each morning bright and early 
To wake up all the neighborhood
To bring to every 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 bumblebee
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
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
