Aawwwwww

Baby Kookaburras - Via Tim Blair's place

Kookaburra Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
Merry merry king of the bush is he
Laugh Kookaburra, laugh Kookaburra
Gay your life must be

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
Eating all the gumdrops he can see
Stop Kookaburra, stop Kookaburra
Leave some gums for me

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
Counting all the monkeys he can see
Stop Kookaburra, stop Kookaburra
That's no monkey, that's ME!!!

You can listen to the Kookaburra here (scroll down)

  1. We sing that song to our boy all the time - and then we saw one at the Zoo last weekend.

  4. BTW Joe is right. The children's TV show "Barney" sang that song all the time. My kids loved that song too. I remember finding pictures for them to know what the bird looked like.
