about

This is my arrangement of the Traditional song, 'The Cuckoo'
It is an a cappella arrangement w/ drums and percussion.

lyrics

I'm gonna build me
A log cabin; on a mountain top so high
So I can see my pretty darlin'
As she goes passin' by

Oh the Cuckoo
She's a pretty bird and she warbles as she flies
But she never hollers 'cuckoo' 'til the fourth day of July

Mmmm hmmm
Mmmm hmmm
Oh Oh
Mmmm hmmm
Mmmm hmmm
Oh Oh

Jack of Diamonds, Jack of Diamond
I know you of old
You done robbed my; my poor pockets
Of my silver and my gold

I have played cards, in England and I've played cards in Spain
And I'll bet you, ten dollar, that I'll beat you again

Mmmm Hmmm
Mmmm Hmmm
Oh Oh
Mmmm Hmmm
Mmmm Hmmm
Oh Oh

Oh the Cuckoo
She's a pretty bird and she warbles as she flies
She will never cause you no trouble
And she'll tell you no lies

Oh the Cuckoo
She's a pretty bird and she warbles as she flies
But she never hollers 'cuckoo' 'til the fourth day of July
