Grandma’s cuckoo’s flown away -

    Her clock is silent now -

But I’ll soon mend her cuckoo clock.

    Instead we’ll have a cow.


Let’s have no more “cuckoo cuckoo”

   Let’s have a gentle moo.

The only problem that we’ll have

     Is cleaning up its poo.


The cuckoo was a bird quite clean

    And left no mess at all,

But cow pats are another thing

     As I quite well recall.


On second thoughts we’ll leave the cow

     In pastures fresh and green.

Let’s get the cuckoo to come home

     And keep Gran’s parlour clean.
