Gun Gun wega widenwil

Story by Brendan Kennedy in Mutti Mutti
The Kookaburra was a laughing bird.
He was always laughing at emu.
When he was laughing his tail always stood up (straight).
One day emu snuck up to catch kookaburra.
Emu hit him on the tail.
and that is why the kookaburras tail sticks down.
