Lyrics - Spanish

(Peruvian folk song)

En un lejano bosque ya canta el cucú.
Oculto en el follaje, el búho contestó
Cucú, le llamó, cucú le llamó,
cucú, cucú, cucú.

English Translation - The cuckoo

In a distant forest the cuckoo sings now
Hidden in the foliage, the owl answered
Cuckoo, he called, cuckoo, he called,
Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo

Recorder Notes D, G, A, B, C, D’

    I just heard this sung by the Apex on KDHX St. Louis. I appreciated the fast way I could see the works translated.
