"She Was One of the Early Birds" is a British Music Hall song popularized by George Beauchamp. This comic song about an unsuccessful romance begins with the memorable phrase "She was a dear little dickie bird," and was sung by Gonzo for the UK Spot in episode 302 of The Muppet Show. The role of the dickie bird was played by the Canary.
Eric the Parrot, Harold, Youknow Bird, Whaddayasay Bird, Ohboy Bird, Righton Bird, Ohreally Bird and Forcryingoutloud Bird joined in midway through the song, whistling and chirping in time to the music.
A dickie bird is mentioned but not seen in "Tit Willow."
