W: W:Chorus: W:It's high the cuckoo, low the cuckoo, high the cuckoo's nest W:It's high the cuckoo, low the cuckoo, high the cuckoo's nest W:I'll give any maid a shilling and a bottle of the best W:Just to rumple up the feathers of her cuckoo's nest W: W:I wooed her in the morning and I had her in the night W:She was my very first one so I tried to do it right W:I searched around and wandered and I never would have guessed W:If she hadn't showed me where to find her cuckoo's nest W: W:Chorus W: W:When she showed me where to find it I knew just where to go W:Through the underbrush and brambles where the little cuckoos grow W:From the moment that I found it, she would never let me rest W:From rumpling up the feathers of her cuckoo's nest. W: W:Chorus W: W:It was bushy, it was prickled, it was feathered all around W:It was tucked away so neatly and it wasn't easy found W:She said young man you're blundering, but I knew it wasn't true W:For I left her with the makings of a young cuckoo W: W:Chorus x2
