kookaburra sits on big live wire, flapping all around with his tail on fire

Ohhhdear

“Kookaburra sits on the old gum rail, picking out the splinters from his tail. Poor kookaburra, poor kookaburra, sorry your tail must be!”

Tiana_likes_Ukelele

Kookaburra sits on the electric wire, jumping up and down with his tail on fire. Ouch, kookaburra ouch, kookaburra sore your butt must be.
