The Cuckoo - English Children's Songs - England - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


There's a ballad called Cuckoo Song that's similar to "The Cuckoo". Paul Simon's song April Come She Will seems to be loosely based around the rhyme and the ballad.



Recorded by my 8 year old daughter.
