1. Der Gutzgauch auf dem Zaune saß,
es regnet sehr, und er ward nass.

2. Darnach da kam der Sonnenschein,
der Gutzgauch der war hübsch und fein.

3. Alsdann schwang er sein Gfiedere,
und flog dorthin wohl übern See.

English.png English translation

The Cuccould sat on a fence
Guck, guck, guck
sang the cuccould on the roof
The rain did fall and he got wett.

And then came the sunnlight
Guck, guck, guck
as the sunnlight came
and the cuccould got dry and fine.

And then he did swing his feathers
guck, guck, guck
He swang his feathers
to fly away across the sea.
