Coo Coo Lyrics

by Janis Joplin

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

Said Jack O' Diamonds, well Jack O' Diamonds
Well, I know you of old
Honey, you've robbed me of my silver
And out of all my gold
All of my gold, all of my gold

Well, Jack O' Diamonds, oh, Jack O' Diamonds
Oh, I knew 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 every time that she passes
My true love says goodbye

Well, says goodbye, well, says goodbye
