Sumer is icumen in

Sumer is icumen in -
Lhudë sing, cuccu!
Groweth sed and bloweth med
And springeth the wudë nu.
Sing, cuccu!

Awë bleteth after lomb
Lhouth after calvë cu,
Bulluc sterteth, buckë verteth,
Murië sing, cuccu!
Cuccu, cuccu,
Well singës thu, cuccu -
Ne swik thu naver nu!

Sing, cuccu, nu! Sing, cuccu!
Sing, cuccu! Sing, cuccu, nu!
