Anonny Mouse Origins: Kookaburra - possible copyright info. (57* d) RE: Origins: Kookaburra - possible copyright info. 07 Apr 06


We used to sing the song (when he was in the ol' gum tree) at Boy Scout Camp (geeeez was THAT a loooooong time ago!!!!). Nobody worried about copyrights. Besides, you wouldn't find any of the Lomaxes out there with a tape machine trying to capture it for posterity.

Two questions (one answer I forgot, 'cause someone told me) the other...not sure. What in Hell is a "Kookburra" (a bird?) and what is a "gum tree" (always pictured gum-drops--don't ask why; it's a Freudian thing).
