Simple things in life stay with you. They might change over the years, but they stay.
What a marvelous contraption, a coo-coo clock
It’s chimes causes nostalgia to strike.
With such a sound to let us know time
A little bird says
Coo-coo, coo-coo
Coo-coo, coo-coo

A child hood thing is this coo-coo clock
Still fresh within our new minds.
Playing with dolls at 4:59
A little bird whispers
Coo-coo, coo-coo
Coo-coo, coo-coo

Now in teens, this coo-coo clock
An infernal ring in our ears.
We try to flirt at 6:59
And a little bird mocks
Coo-coo, coo-coo
Coo-coo, coo-coo

Adults hurry along with this coo-coo clock
Work is to be done quite soon
You know your wife’s waiting at 8:59
Because a little bird reminds you with
Coo-coo, coo-coo
Coo-coo, coo-coo

Finally old and happy here
No regret in the whole wide world.
You smile at the clock
At 9:59
And a little bird sings
Ring ring.
