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 gum drops he can see
Stop, Kookaburra! Stop, Kookaburra!
Leave 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.

French Translation:

Kookaburra

Kookaburra est assis dans le vieux gommier
Joyeux, joyeux roi de la brousse il est
Rit, Kookaburra ! Rit, Kookaburra !
D’être gaie ta vie se doit.

Kookaburra est assis dans le vieux gommier
Il mange toutes les gouttes de gomme qu’il voit
Stop, Kookaburra ! Stop, Kookaburra !
Laisses-en un peu pour moi.

Kookaburra est assis dans le vieux gommier
Il compte tous les singes qu’il voit
Stop, Kookaburra ! Stop, Kookaburra !
Ce n’est pas un singe c’est moi.
