4 Colly (not Calling) Birds

This verse is often sung as 4 calling birds, but is is actually 4 colly or collier, which is a black bird.  In England a coal mine is called a colliery which means black like coal.  This gift sets your true love back $599.96.  I am sure that doesn't include the cage, bird seed, etc etc etc.  And do you want birds to take care of, which is why I have posted this version of Beatles-Black Birds (Acoustic Cover-Tomothy Moloi).

Both of you will fly.
