Coo Coo

Peter Albin

Oh the cuckoo, she's a pretty bird, and she warbles when she flies
But she never hollers "cuckoo" till the fourth day of July.

I said Jack o'Diamonds, well Jack o'Diamonds, Oh I - Oh I know you of old.
Honey you robbed me of my silver and out of - of all my gold,
all the gold - all my gold.

Well Jack o'Diamonds, uh Jack o'Diamonds, Oh I - Oh I know you of old.
Honey, you robbed me of my silver and out of all my gold.

Said the cuckoo, she's a cruel bird, and she warbles when she flies
And ever-y time that she passes, my true love says good-bye,
Well says good-bye - well says good-bye.
Woo-oo, oo woo oo oo, ... ¥Ç¥

As recorded at United Studios (Los Angeles) on 12 December 1966 and first released on the 1968 second pressing of the vinyl album Big Brother & The Holding Company (track 6 side A) Mainstream 6099
