"The Coo Coo Bird" as written by and Thomas Clarence Ashley....
Gonna build me a log cabin
On a mountian so high
So I can see Willie
As he goes on by

Um hmm hmm

Oh the coo-coo is a pretty bird
She wobbles when she flies
She never hollers coo-coo
'Til the fourth day of July

I've played cards in England
I've played cards in Spain
I'll bet you ten dollars
I'll beat you next game

Jack of diamonds, Jack of diamonds

I've known you from old
Now you've robbed my poor pockets
Of my silver and my gold

Um hmm hmm

I've played cards in England
I've played cards in Spain
I'll bet you ten dollars
I beat you this game

Oh the coo-coo is a pretty bird
She wobbles when she flies
She never hollers coo-coo
'Til the fourth day of July
