This is an Australian song we Americans used to sing as kids.
Kookaburra song, Australia, Marion Sinclair (ca. 1895--1988) in 1932

C F C
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree.
C F C
merry, merry king of the bush is he.
C F C
Laugh, kookaburra, laugh kookaburra,
G F C
Gay your life must be. 1) Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,

Merry, merry king of the bush is he,

Laugh, Kookaburra, Laugh, Kookaburra,

Gay your life must be.




2) Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree

Eating all the gumdrops he can see

Stop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra

Leave some there for me.




3) Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,

Counting all the monkeys he can see

Stop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra,

That's no monkey, that's me.
