The Cuckoo lyrics

Gonna build me a log cabin On a mountian so high So I can see Willie As he goes on by Um hmm hmm Oh the coo-coo is a pretty bird She wobbles when she flies She never hollers coo-coo 'Til the fourth day of July I've played cards in England I've played cards in Spain I'll bet you ten dollars I'll beat you next game Jack of diamonds, Jack of diamonds I've known you from old Now you've robbed my poor pockets Of my silver and my gold Um hmm hmm I've played cards in England I've played cards in Spain I'll bet you ten dollars I beat you this game Oh the coo-coo is a pretty bird She wobbles when she flies She never hollers coo-coo 'Til the fourth day of July
