The Cuckoo

Music by Donovan P. Leitch, lyrics from a traditional poem


Well, the cuckoo, she's a pretty bird
And she warble as she fly
And she never warble cuckoo
Till the fourth day of July

Jack of diamonds, Jack of diamonds
Well, I know you of old
Well, you robbed my poor pocket
Of the silver and the gold

Well, the cuckoo, is a pretty bird
And she warbles as she flies
And she never warble cuckoo
Till the fourth day of July

Well, I've gambled in London
And I've gambled in Spain
And I bet you may silver saddle
That I'll beat you next game

Oh, the cuckoo, she's a pretty bird
And she warble as she fly
And she never warble cuckoo
Till the fourth day of July

Well, she brings us glad tidings
And tells us no lies
Oh, the cuckoo, she's a pretty bird
And she warble as she flies

Oh, the cuckoo, she's a pretty bird
And she warble as she fly
But she never warble cuckoo
Till the fourth day of July

Little darlin, little darlin
I miss you on the road
Well you are my only darlin
My one and only true abode

Oh, the cuckoo, she's a pretty bird
And she warble as she fly
And she never warble cuckoo
Till the fourth day of July

Oh, yeah, oh, yeah
