tribute to a kookaburra

There's an old camp song about Kookaburras that I remember every time I hear one. I dedicate this verse to the dreadfully annoying bird:

"Kookaburra sits in an old gum tree,

Laughing up a storm at ten past three.

Die, kookaburra, die, kookaburra,

I'm sleeping -- let me be."

If you've never had the joy of hearing one of these Australian jewels, follow this link and listen.
