I'LL SAW HIS SEE-SAW DOWN
 
div
 
I've just bought a saw that I saw in a shop
And I don't think that I bought it for fun
I feel in a desparate sort of a mood
There's a dark deed just going to be done
I had a nice girl, but last week she left me
For a pretty boy named Esau Wood
So alas, I've been jilted, I must have my revenge
I'll teach Esau Wood to be good.

Chorus: I saw Esau sitting on a see-saw
See-sawing with my girl Brown
I've bought a saw and when I see Esau
I'll saw his see-saw down.


When I saw Esau on the see-saw today
Well, I felt sore with Esau, you see
How dare Esau see-saw my little girl
I want my girl to see-saw with me
I crept in the wood and I saw Esau Wood
Now, I think I told you that before
Well, I saw Esau see-saw my girl for two hours
And Esau he saw that I saw

Chorus: I saw Esau sitting on a see-saw
See-sawing with my girl Brown
I've bought a saw and when I see Esau
I'll saw his see-saw down.
