Thread Name: Upon a tree a cuckoo/Auf einem Baum ein Kuckuck
Subject: SONG TITLE ENQUIRY #2
Should have added this one on the previous thread. There is a nonsense song about an archer shooting a cuckoo. I need to know the exact title for liner notes. Here are some lyrics to jog your memories.

"Upon a tree a cuckoo
Zim za ta reet some butter (sounds like that anyway)
Upon a tree a cuckoo   (pause)   sat."

"There came a cruel archer
Zim za ta reet.....
There came a cuel archer   (pause)   by."

"He shot that poor cuckoo
Zim za ta reet....
He shot that poor cuckoo   (pause)   dead."

And so on....

Anyone know the title of this song, know where it's from, etc?
