The Kookaburra Song

The Kookaburra song is a family classic, especially in Australia. This is a great song for all family members to share around the campfire.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Merry merry king of the bush is he,
Laugh, kookaburra,
laugh, kookaburra,
Gay your life must be,

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Eating all the gumdrops he can see,
Stop, kookaburra,
stop, kookaburra,
Save some there for me,

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Counting all the monkeys he can see,
Stop, kookaburra,
stop, kookaburra,
That's not a monkey, that's me.
