Text heard on Sample:
...Soomer is icoomen in,
Loode sing cuckoo.
Groweth sayd and bloweth mayd
And springth the woode new,
Sing cuckoo;
Awe blaytheth after lamb,
Lowth after calve coo;
Bullock stairteth, booke vairteth,
Mirry sing cuckoo,
Well singes thoo, cuckoo.

Which to prolong,
God save our king,
and send his country peace,
And root out treason from the land!
and so, my friends, I cease.

Trad / Beaumont and Fletcher
