The last line was "looking for the nest there in the willow." I think the first line of the second verse was something about throwing off the clothes of gray and brown.

I wish I could remember it all. We learned it as a song in early elementary school in the early 1960's. I think the title was Jenny Wren, but again I'm not sure.
