Once an Austrian Went Yodeling

Lyrics

Once an Austrian Went Yodeling on a mountaintop high
When along came a cuckoo interruptig his cry
Ho-li-a, ho-li-a-hee-hee-a
Ho-li-a-cuckoo, cuckoo
Ho-li-a, ho-li-a-hee-hee-a
Ho-li-a-cuckoo, cuckoo
Ho-li-a, ho-li-a-hee-hee-a
Ho-li-a-cuckoo, cuckoo
Ho-li-a-hee-hee-a ho.

Once an Austrian Went Yodeling on a mountaintop high
When along came a grizzly bear interrupting his cry
Ho-li-a, ho-li-a-hee-hee-a
Ho-li-a-cuckoo, cuckoo, rawr!
Ho-li-a, ho-li-a-hee-hee-a
Ho-li-a-cuckoo, cuckoo, rawr!
Ho-li-a, ho-li-a-hee-hee-a
Ho-li-a-cuckoo, cuckoo, rawr!
Ho-li-a-hee-hee-a ho.

When along came an avalanche, interrupting his cry
Ho-li-a, ho-li-a-hee-hee-a
Ho-li-a cuckoo, cuckoo, rawr!, swish!

When along came an anteater, interrupting his cry
Ho-li-a, ho-li-a-hee-hee-a
Ho-li-a cuckoo, cuckoo, rawr!, swish! zot!

When along came a snowman, interrupting his cry
Ho-li-a, ho-li-a-hee-hee-a
Ho-li-a cuckoo, cuckoo, rawr!, swish! zot! brrr!

When along came a bluebird, interrupting his cry
Ho-li-a, ho-li-a-hee-hee-a
Ho-li-a cuckoo, cuckoo, rawr!, swish! zot! brr! cheep, cheep.

You can make motions if you like - keeps the kids' interest
rawr! like a charging bear
swish! like an avalanche sweeping you away
zot! like an anteater's tongue shooting out
brr! hugging yourself like you're cold
Cheep, cheek - fingers like you're making quote marks.

I have been looking for this song for ages for my classroom! I had a sub sing it years ago and I have never been able to find it since and I've been going crazy looking for it ever since! Now if you could just put it to the music... Thanks so much!
