"Kookaburra Sits on the Old Gum Tree" was written by Margaret Sinclair in 1932 and children today still sing the song in school. I remember singing it as a 'Round', where a second group comes in after the first line.
Our resident Kookaburra's sentinel post
is the clothesline...
♫ 'I feel the earth move under my feet' ♪♪
~~ he can also hear that worm moving ~~
or see that hopper hopping...
He was back again this morning
fluffed up against the chill and fog
