One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Title

The title of the book is a line from a nursery rhyme:

Vintery, mintery, cutery, corn, Apple seed and apple thorn, Wire, briar, limber lock Three geese in a flock One flew East One flew West And one flew over the cuckoo's nest

Chief Bromden's grandmother sang this song to him when he was young.
