GUEST,Becky Lyr Req: camp song about home in tyrol (35) RE: Lyr Req: camp song about home in tyrol 30 Mar 11

I love this site! Stephen, I'm not sure what more you want. The song referred to in most of these posts, known to many Americans as "The Cuckoo", is in several older editions of school music texts, sometimes mentioning Peter and sometimes not. In the "Wee Sing" series of songbooks, the take-off camp song version appears, complete with avalanche, skier, etc., up to the pretty girl, stopping short of the mama & papa verses. The only tune I've ever heard or seen for it is mrdsdtdr, fmrltd (repeat). Yodeling: s--l--t--dddsmd, tttsf, tttsft, dddsm, dddsmd, tttsf, tttsftd. I don't know how to indicate octave for those pitches. If it's necessary, I'll try harder - but it looks to me as though I'm not telling you anything tune-wise that you haven't already gotten. I came searching for an original language version and alternative set of English words for my second graders, and I got more than I bargained for. Thanks to all!
