THE HUNTSMAN
 
div
 
I'm not a fireman or a 'tec', as some folks may suppose
Although perhaps you'd think so, when you gaze upon my clothes
At present I'm a huntsman gay, a huntsman gay am I
And all the ladies smile at me, as through the air I fly.

Chorus: Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away we go
I don't know where we go
But still I know we go away
Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away we go
I don't know where we go
But still I know we go away.


I've played at various hunting games since I've been on this earth
But of that class of hunting I never knew the worth
I won't infer that I have never hunted hares before
Because at home, when we've had soup, I've found them by the score.

Chorus: Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away we go
I don't know where we go
But still I know we go away
Away, away, away, away
Away, away
