    Verse 1.
    Kookaburra sits in the ol' gum tree.
    Merry Merry king of the bush is he.
    Laugh, Kookaburra, Laugh, Kookaburra.
    Gay your life must be!
    Verse 2.
    Kookaburra sits in the ol' gum tree.
    Feeding on the gumdrops he can see.
    Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra.
    Save some gums for me!
