Subject: RE: Upon a tree a cuckoo/Auf einem Baum ein Kuckuck
Thanks for drawing my attention to that, Mick. No, tune not identical but not a million miles away either like some of other German versions. I copied the URL from Youtube sidebar. The German version not as full of plot and digestive moral as my English one, by any means. The hunter just seems to kill the bird & that's it, except that it is resurrected miraculously a year later — but nothing of how he cooks & eats it & the gastro-dyspeptic consequences, as in mine.
