I came across this in The Collected Reprints from Sing Out! (Vol 1-6) [the pink one], page 235. It was a newly-written song, performed by the Babysitters on their Vanguard album. I recall Lee Hays singing lead in his booming voice.
Who were Josef Berger and Nick Klonaris?

(Josef Berger and Nick Klonaris)

Theirs is a little house, theirs is,
In a pear tree full of pearses;
They're birds, you see, and they live in a tree
Where they don't need ladders of stairses.

They're happy and free of careses,
They never have to run from bearses;
And pears are free to birds, you see,
'Round the world or any other whereses.

Theirs is a little house, theirs is,
With little bird beds and chairses;
Did you ever hear of any house near
As nice a little house is theirs is?

Not sure about Josef Berger but Nick Klonaris was my father. We lived in Shirley, Long Island duing the 60's and early 70's. This was where Nick wrote a children's songbook with Berger.
