Subject: RE: Songs from the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround
Latkes was sung to the tune of "The cuckoo" rather than the "coo coo". The cuckoo is a pretty bird, she warbles as she flies. And she never hollers "cuckoo" [coo coo?] till the fourth day of July." I learned the song before I moved to a place where I heard many cuckoos, and they holler in May.
