Hear the call of the ringneck loon
Hear the sound he will be home soon
Hear the cry in the afternoon
Ringneck loon, he knows best
He's a loon and he don't care less
Ringneck loon, away off shore
How could anybody ask for more

Hear the call of the ringneck loon
Hear the sound he will be home soon
Hear the cry in the afternoon

Ringneck loon, he can't rest
He's a loon and he don't care less
Ringneck loon around the bend
Been a loon since he don't know when

Hear the call of the ringneck loon

City life is what I see
City life is the life for me
Ringneck loon, he knows best
He's a loon and he don't care less

Hear the cry of the ringneck loon
Hear the sound he will be home soon
Hear the cry in the afternoon

Ringneck loon, you can't rest
You're a loonie and you don't care less
Ringneck loon my old friend
Been a loon since he don't know when

Hear the cry of the ringneck loon
Hear the sound he will be home soon
Hear the cry in the afternoon
