The Cuckoo's a fine bird
Nursery Rhyme lyrics, origins and history

The cuckoo's a fine bird,
He sings as he flies;
He brings us good tidings
He tells us no lies.

He sucks little birds' eggs,
To make his voice clear;
And when he sings "Cuckoo"
The summer is near !

The cuckoo is a merry bird,
She sings as she flies;
She brings us good tidings,
And tells us no lies.

She sucks little birds' eggs
To make her voice clear,
That she may sing Cuckoo!
Three months in the year.
