My Pigeon House

Lyrics

(German folk song)

1. I open up my pigeon house,
And I set all my pigeons free.
They fly around on every side,
‘Til they perch on the highest tree.
And when they return from their merry, merry flight,
They close their eyes and they say, ‘Good night’.
Coo coo, coo coo, coo coo, coo coo, coo coo, coo coo coo coo.

2. I open up my pigeon house,
And I set all my pigeons free.
They fly around and up and down,
‘Til they perch on the highest tree.
And when they return from their merry, merry flight,
They turn on the light and they dance all night.
Coo coo, coo coo, coo coo, coo coo, coo coo, coo coo coo coo.

    I have been looking for this song for YEARS. My aunt would sing it to me when I was a child. The only part I remembered was the chorus.
    Coo -a roo, coo-a -roo, my pigeon’s fly,.
    Thanks for having this on your site.

  2. Thanks for listing these lyrics. As a Kindergarten child I sung this song so often at school and the class all did the hand actions which go with the lyrics. I am a scrapbooker and will use lyrics to add to the page.
    Thanks so much!
