Kookaburra

A familiar, fun tune originating from Australia.



Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh, Kookaburra! Laugh, Kookaburra!
Gay your life must be

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Eating all the gum drops he can see
Stop, Kookaburra! Stop, Kookaburra!
Save some gums for me

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Counting all the monkeys he can see
Stop, Kookaburra! Stop, Kookaburra!
That's not a monkey that's me

Kookaburra sits on a kangaroo,
hoppin' and jumpin' fro and to.
Bounce Kookaburra. Bounce Kookaburra.
What a thing to do.

Kookaburra blows on a didjeridu,
huffs and puffs til his face turns blue.
Huff, Kookaburra. Puff, Kookaburra.
It's too big for you!
