There's a pombush in the garden where the lads and lassies meet
For it wouldna' do to do the do they're doin' i' the street
The first time that I went there I was very much impressed
To see the young folks rumplin' i' the cuckoo's nest.

cho: It's hi! the cuckin' ho! the cuckin'
Hi! the cuckoo's nest,
Hi! the cuckin' ho! the cuckin'
Hi! the cuckoo's nest,
I'll give any man a shilling and a bottle of the best
Who'll rumple up the feathers of the cuckoo's nest.

I met her in the mornin' and I had her i' the night
I'd never gone that way before and had to do it right
I never would have found it and I never would have guessed
If she hadn't showed me where to find the cuckoo's nest.

She showed me where to find it and she showed me where to go
Through the prickles and the brambles where the little cuckoo's grow,
From the moment that I found it she would never let me rest
Till I'd rumpled up the feathers of the cuckoo's nest.

It was thorny, it was prickled, it was deathered all around
It was tucked into a corner where it wasn't easy found,
She said, "Young man, you're blundering." I said it wasn't true
I left her with the makings of a young cuckoo.
