Darling little bird, you who carried me
Darling little bird, you who gave birth to me
Darling little bird, can you see the shirt burning on my chest
Little bird, answer these questions before you rest.

What thoughts did you think?
What deeds did you do?
From what stream did you dirnk?
Do you hear me call?

Darling little bird, you got ready you were gone
Darling little bird, long before the fair summer's dawn
Darling little bird, you turned into a sweet soul bird
You flew little bird, oh my fair cuckoo.

What thoughts did you think?
What deeds did you do?
From what stream did you drink?
Do you hear me call?

Darling little bird, you got ready you were gone
Darling little bird, long before the fair summer's dawn
Darling little bird, you turned into a sweet soul bird
You flew little bird, oh my fair cuckoo.

What thoughts did you think?
What deeds did you do?
From what stream did you drink?
Do you hear me call?

When I go, when I go into the forest
When I go, please sit on that tree.
When I go, cuckoo, I'll hear your chorus,
Then I'll know, I'll know it's you for me.
