Oh I went to Peter’s well.
And do you know what I heard?
From the murky swamp far away,
Called a lone cuckoo bird.


Heiliah, huldriah, huldriah.
huldriah, cuckoo.
Huldriah, hihiah,
huldriah, cuckoo.
Huldriah, hihiah,
huldriah, cuckoo,
Huldriah, hihiah,

Oh! In the spring when the weather warmed
All the snow went away.
And my girl went and married
Leaving me in dismay.


And since my girl’s gone away
Tell me what do I do?
She took all my love with her
And my money too!Repeat
