Sumer is icumen in,
  lhude sing cuccu.
Groweth sed and bloweth med
  and springth the wode nu.
Sing cuccu.

Awe bleteth after lomb,
  lhouth after calve cu.
Bulluc sterteth, bucke verteth,
  murrie sing cuccu.

Cuccu, cuccu,
wel singes thu cuccu,
ne swik thu naver nu.

Perspice christicola, quae dignatio
Language: Latin  after the English 
Perspice christicola, quae dignatio:
caelicus agricola pro vitis vitio,
filio non parcens, exposuit mortis exitio.
Qui captivos semivivos a supplicio.
Vitae donat, et secum coronat in coeli solio.
