THE MOCKING BIRD WENT "CUCKOO"
As sung by Gracie Fields, 1931

Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Hee-haw! Hee-haw!
Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Hee-haw!

A lovesick youth and maiden, down on the farm,
With heart so heavy laden, down on the farm,
They held each other's hands and looked into each other's eyes,
And started to tell each other lies.

He kissed her by the cowshed door.
She said, "I've not been kissed before"
And the mockingbird went "cuckoo" and the donkey went "hee-haw."
He said, "My love I'll swear to you."
She said, "I'll smack you if you do"
And the mockingbird went "cuckoo" and the donkey went "hee-haw."

Nelly Bly, Nelly Bly said, "Oh, how you tease me!
I'm so shy, I'm so shy, when you start to squeeze me."
He said, "Come down, me pretty miss.
Where did you learn to squeeze and kiss?"
And the mockingbird went "cuckoo" and the donkey went "hee-haw."

She said, "I love the twilight, down on the farm."
Said he, "The dark is my light, down on the farm."
Said she, "You seem so big and brave and mighty strong to me."
Said he, "Yes, I had onions for me tea."

He said, "I love you, yes, I do."
She said to him, "Oh yeah, says you?"
And the mockingbird went "cuckoo" and the donkey went "hee-haw."
He said, "You're sweet beyond belief."
Said she, "You said it! OK, chief!"
And the mockingbird went "cuckoo" and the donkey went "hee-haw."

Nelly Bly, Nelly Bly said, "Walk round the houses
Just while I, just while I, go and milk the cowses."
As they sat 'neath the stars above,
She said to him, "Oh, what is love?"
And the mockingbird went "hee-haw" and the donkey went "cuckoo."

While she sat there and milked the cow,
"I'll do my bit," said he, "and how!"
And the mockingbird went "cuckoo" and the donkey went "hee-haw."
He found an old three-legged stool
And sat right down to milk the bull
And the mockingbird went "cuckoo" and the donkey went "hee-haw."

Nelly Bly, Nelly Bly, went all in a lather,
Began to cry, shouted, "Why, that's the cow's father!"
He turned white and looked surprised,
Then to the bull apologized,
And the mockingbird went "cuckoo" and the donkey went "hee-haw."
