Now Johnny’s father had told him: “Son, keep your feathers clean,”
And his mother had told him: “Dear, every day you must preen;
Once in the morning, once again around noon,
And again in the evening, would not be too soon.

“Plumas siempre arregladas,” era el lema del padre
“Querido, cada día debes limpiarte,” le decía la madre,
“Una vez por la mañana, y otra vez al mediodía,
Y nuevamente de noche,” así le decía.
