Kein Vogel doch gescheidter ist
Als du es bist!
Du kannst dich krauen hinter'm Ohr
Und richtest deinen Schopf empor,
Und frag' ich dich: wie heißest du?
Antwortest du:
Kakadu! Kakadu!

Und auch kein Vogel schöner ist
Als du es bist!
Drum drehst du dich so stolz und dumm
In deinem goldnen Käfig um,
Und schreist und kreischest immerzu,
Ja immerzu:
Kakadu! Kakadu!
