The Cuckoo

Oh the cuckoo is a pretty bird,
And I wish she was mine.
She never drinks whiskey,
She only drinks wine.

Gonna build me a cabin
On the mountain so high.
So I can see my Polly,
As she goes riding by.

I’ve gambled in England,
And I’ve gambled in Spain.
I’ll bet you five dollars,
I’ll beat you next game.

Jack of diamonds, Jack of diamonds,
I know you from old.
You’ve robbed my poor pockets,
Of my silver and my gold.
