Kookaburra Sits In The Old Gum Tree


Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree,
Merry merry king of the bush is he.
Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra,
Gay your life must be!

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Eating all the gumdrops he can see
Stop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra
Leave some there for me.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Counting all the monkeys he can see
Stop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra,
That's no monkey, that's me.


"Kookaburra" a popular Australian nursery rhyme
was written in 1934 written by Marion Sinclair
as an entry in a competition run by the
Girl Guides Association of Victoria
