Cuckoo Bird
(Everly Brothers)


Oh the cuckoo, she's a pretty bird; she warbles as she flies
But I never give her water till the 4th day of July

It is often that I wonder why women love men
& I look back & I wonder why men are men

Gonna build me a castle on a mountain so high
So I can see my true love as she passes by

Jack o' Diamonds, Jack o' Diamonds, I know you of old
You have robbed me my whole pockets of silver & gold
