Since it's the kind of thing people seem to amuse themselves with on this forum, I'll amuse myself by passing along this '50's rock take on Kookaburra that a couple of us came up with at summer camp, circa 1970:

(Ba-ba-ba bop!)
Saw the kookaburra late last night;
(Ba-ba-ba bop!)
He's tellin' me everything's all right;
(Ba-ba-ba bop!)
Eatin' all the gumdrops he can see;
(Ba-ba-ba bop!)
Leavin' none for my baby and me.

Then the usual chorus.

Don't recall if we had more verses. Anyway, it was number one on the summer camp hit parade for a couple of weeks.

Hope we didn't contravene any copyright regulations.
