Sumer is icumen in!

Loudly sing, Cuckoo!

Grows the seed and blows the mead and springs the wood anew!

Sing, Cuckoo!

Ewe bleats harshly after lamb

Cows after calves make moo

Bullock stamps and deer champs

Now shrilly sing, Cuckoo!

Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Wild bird are you!

Be never still, Cuckoo!

Sumer is icumen in!

Loudly sing, Cuckoo!

Grows the seed and blows the mead and springs the wood anew!

Sing, Cuckoo!
