Cuckoo Song

by Anonymous

Sumer is icumen in, Lhude sing cuccu; Groweth sed and bloweth med And Springth the wude nu.      Sing cuccu! Awe bleteth after lomb, Lhouth after calve cu; Bulluc sterteth, bucke verteth; Murie sing cuccu. Cuccu, cuccu, Wel singes thu, cuccu, Ne swik thu naver nu.      Sing cuccu nu! Sing cuccu!      Sing cuccu! Sing cuccu nu!
