Love’s not giving up

Translation from South African Sign Language into English

The bird is fluttering its wings
It is searching for something
For years, years and years
The bird is fluttering its wings
Tweeting, tweeting, and tweeting
It saw something
The bird is fluttering its wings
Tweeting at the other bird
The other bird is tweeting back
They touch their beaks
They look at each other in delight
They flutter their wings together
The other bird falls down
The bird flutters down
It touches the other bird’s beak
Bumps it up and encourages
It to come up, they flutter up together
They are fluttering their wings together
The bird falls down
The other bird flutters down
It touches the bird’s beak
Bumps it up and encourages
It to come up, they flutter up together
They are fluttering their wings together
They both fall down
They both encourage each other
Then they both continue fluttering
Their wings together
Tweeting, tweeting, and tweeting
