Cuckoo Song






Sing, cuccu, nu! Sing, cuccu!
  Sing, cuccu! Sing, cuccu, nu!
  Sumer is icumen in;
  Lhud{.e} sing, cuccu!
  Groweth sed, and bloweth med,
  And springth the wud{.e} nu.
  Sing, cuccu!

  Aw{.e} bleteth after lomb,
  Lhouth after calv{.e} cu;
  Bulluc sterteth, buck{.e} verteth;
  Muri{.e} sing, cuccu!

  Cuccu! cuccu!
  Wel sing{.e}s thu, cuccu;
  Ne swik thu naver nu.
