VERSE 01: In a tree that I can see/Each morn when I arise,/Two young coocoos woo,/How they bill and cool/Lady Bird won’t say a word,/But love is in her eyes;/She will sigh and look away,/Then is when I hear him say.
CHORUS 01: “Coo coo you’ve got me coo coo!/No bird can coo like you coo./I’ll break my wish bone wishing for you,/Take me, take me, do!/Little love bird./I like the way your alto/Mingles with my contralto/Birds of a feather,/We should get together;/Coo coo, I’m coo coo over you!”/you!”
VERSE 02: On the limb each day with him,/This love scene she repeats./Though she gets a thrill,/She won’t say; “I will.”/She believes that he deceives/Each lady bird he meets;/Still she coos just like a dove/When he sings his song of love.
CHORUS 02: “Coo coo you’ve got me coo coo!/No bird can coo like you coo./I’ll break my wish bone wishing for you,/Take me, take me, do!/Nudging her bold romancer,/She fin’lly made this answer/”I’m such a weak bird,/Be more like the sheik, bird;/Coo coo, I’m coo coo over you!”/you!”
