(Folk song)

1. Cuckoo, cuckoo calls from the tree.
“Now let us sing and dance and be merry!”
Cuckoo, cuckoo calls from the tree.

2. Cuckoo, cuckoo calls from the tree.
“Come to the fields so pleasant to see,
For springtime springtime comes merrily!”

Recorder Notes G, A, B, C, D’

    1. Hi Jess! I adapt folk songs for all sorts of reasons. In this case, to avoid confusion with singing the same words “cuckoo” with two different rhythms, I changed the lyrics. 🙂
