Lumberjack Song, The


[Monty Python's Flying Circus]

I never wanted to do this job in the first place!
I... I wanted to be... A LUMBERJACK!

Leaping from tree to tree! As they float down the mighty rivers of British
Columbia! With my best girl by my side! The Larch! The Pine! The Giant
Redwood tree! The Sequoia! The Little Whopping Rule Tree! We'd sing! Sing!
Sing!

Oh, I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day.
Oh he's a lumberjack and he's okay,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.
I cut down trees, I eat my lunch,
I go to the lava-try.
On Wednesdays I go shoppin'
And have buttered scones for tea.

He cuts down trees, he eats his lunch,
He goes to the lava-try.
On Wednesdays he goes shoppin'
And has buttered scones for tea.

I cut down trees, I skip and jump,
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women's clothing,
And hang around in bars.

He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps,
He likes to press wild flowers.
He puts on women's clothing
And hangs around.... In bars???????

Oh, I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day.
I chop down trees, I wear high heels,
Suspendies and a bra.
I wish I'd been a girlie
Just like my dear papa.

He cuts down trees, he wears high heels
Suspendies?? and a .... a Bra????

Oh, I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay,
