kookaburra...

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!

Leave some there for me...

 

Marion Sinclair

 

This song was written in 1936, and introduced at a Scout Jamboree in Melbourne, Australia.

 

and an Italian version:

 

Kookaburra sta su una vecchia pianta

tutto il santo giorno felice canta

qua, kookaburra, qua!

kookaburra canta insieme a me.
