Lyrics
There they were, there they were,
He was baby-talkin' her,
And the cuckoo in the clock went "Cuckoo!"
Every fifteen minutes he crew,
"Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo!"

"Be a pal, be a pal",
Said the fella to his gal,
And the cuckoo in the clock went "Cuckoo!
I believe they're startin' to woo,
Woo-woo, woo-woo, woo-woo!"

They didn't know that everything they said was overheard;
They didn't hear that little birdie givin' them the bird!

So he said with a sigh,
"Who's your little peachy pie?"
And the cuckoo in the clock went "Cuckoo!
Though I'm just a little cuckoo,
I'm not as cuckoo as you!"
Then he closed the door and withdrew,
"Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo!"

They didn't know that everything they said was overheard;
They didn't hear that little birdie givin' them the bird!

So he said with a sigh,
"Who's your little peachy pie?"
And the cuckoo in the clock went "Cuckoo!
Though I'm just a little cuckoo,
I'm not as cuckoo as you!"
Then he closed the door and withdrew,
"Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo!
"Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo!
Oh yeah!"
