I looked at all the versions of Wild Rover that I could find - from England, Scotland, Australia, Canada and Ireland - in the course of researching a paper on the song that was published in the Folk Music Journal last year. I don't recall ever having seen a verse about a cuckoo and, having just checked through most of them, I still can't find it.

Not in any traditional version I can think of. Lots of modern versions/parodies - but I've never heard mention of a cuckoo there, either. More clues?

Regards.

Letter to The Times

Sir, I would like to report the first Mudcat sight of brooko for 2015. This is about the same as earlier years even though last year he was exceptionally late(May 2014).
Oh, by the way, first use of the word cuckoo in a thread title too. (16th Feb last year).

This traditional verse from a couple of other songs would fit, if you can't find the one you want.

The cuckoo is a pretty bird, she sings as she flies
She brings us good tidings, she tells us no lies
She sucks the small birds eggs to make her voice clear
And the more she sings cuckoo, the summer draws near.

No relationship to the Wild Rover that I can see, but it scans OK.
