Lyrics

R&W:
Hove off in the goodie with my pack sack on
Hove off in the goodie with me pack sack on
Hove off in the goodie with me pack sack on

K:
Is lying in the underbrush encumbered with one’s kit bag!

R&W:
Settin’ loops in the country in d’fall of d’year
Settin’ loops in the country in d’fall of d’year
Settin’ loops in the country in d’fall of d’year

K:
Setting snares in the woods
For the hares, that run loose
In the autumn of the year!

R&W:
Scravelin’ after berries with me goat boots on
Scravelin’ after berries with me goat boots on
Scravelin’ after berries with me goat boots on

K:
Picking berries on the bogs
With the children, wives and dogs
In footwear made appropriate
Such as thigh rubbers cut low yet
No so low as to be useless altogether!

R&W:
Crackin’ crannicks to the fire with the switchel onto boil
Crackin’ crannicks to the fire with the switchel onto boil
Crackin’ crannicks to the fire with the switchel onto boil

K:
Stoking fires with little sticks
A flotsam driftwood mix,
Gathered along the shores,
In armloads by the score,
In this case to boil water
In a juice can slightly altered
To suffice as a kettle
for some very bitter tea.

R&W:
Doutin’ boughs what’s too blasty cause the flankers is too thick
Doutin’ boughs what’s too blasty cause the flankers is too thick
Doutin’ boughs what’s too blasty cause the flankers is too thick

K:
Is extinguishing those fires
Which flare suddenly and wild
When fueled within boughs
Which so tinder do allow
Great showers of sparks
Carries on the wind may start
Unwanted fires and thus
Are a danger.

R&W:
Singin’ songs with arsos what haven’t got a clue
Singin’ songs with arsos what haven’t got a clue
Singin’ songs with arsos what haven’t got a clue
