Boom-de-ada, boom-de-ada
Boom-de-ada, boom-de-ada

1st group sings verse
while 2nd group sings Boom-de-ada's throughout,
then groups switch

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh Kookaburra, laugh Kookaburra
Gay your life must be

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
Counting all the monkeys he can see
Stop Kookaburra, stop Kookaburra
That's not a monkey that's me

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
Eating all the gumdrops he can see
Stop Kookaburra, stop Kookaburra
Leave some there for me

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree
He fell down and broke his knee
Ouch Kookaburra, ouch Kookaburra
Glad tha was not me

Sing when the day is done
Singing is happiness
Sing everyone
