Subject: RE: Origins: Kookaburra - possible copyright info.
I grew up in Australia and the version I remember was:

Kookaburra sits on the 'lectric wire
Jumping up and down with his pants on fire
Fly, kookaburra fly, kookaburra fly away from here!

We'd usually sing the traditional version as the first verse, and the 'lectric wire' one as the second. :)
