GUEST, GEST Lyr Req: 'Whur be yon blackbird too?' (57* d) RE: 'Whur be yon blackbird too?' 28 Jul 03


Where Be It Blackbird To?
Where Be It Blackbird To?

Where be it blackbird to? I know where he be,
He be up yon wurzel tree, and I be after he!
Now I sees he, and he sees I,
(Bugger'd) Brudder if I don't get 'en
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
'Ow's 'e, Fadder?
(Audience Answer) Alright!

All me life I'm on the farm, workin' for me keep,
Tendin' pigs and chickens, and they cows and sheep;
And then while I'm workin', there's one who always mocks me,
He sittin up 'dere in the trees, blackbird I'll 'ave he!

Where be it blackbird to? I know where he be,
He be up yon wurzel tree, and I be after he!
Now I sees he, and he sees I,
(Bugger'd) Brudder if I don't get 'en
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
'Ow's 'e, Fadder?
(Audience Answer) Alright!

Underneath the open sky in spring we likes to dine,
We likes to 'ear the flappin' of the missus washin' line;
We listens to a tuneful song, a blackbird or a tit,
But on me vest and underpants he scored a direct hit!

Where be it blackbird to? I know where he be,
He be up yon Wurzel tree, and I be after he!
Now I sees he, and he sees I,
(Bugger'd) Brudder if I don't get 'en
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
'Ow's 'e, Fadder?
(Audience Answer) Alright!

If I goes out poachin', a creepin' through the fields,
With me old retriever, a followin' at me heels;
If I aim me shotgun at a pheasant in the hay,
That bloody blackbird starts his row and frightens him away!

Where be it blackbird to? I know where he be,
He be up yon wurzel tree, and I be after he!
Now I sees he, and he sees I,
(Bugger'd) Brudder if I don't get 'en
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
'Ow's 'e, Fadder?
(Audience Answer) Alright!

No longer can I sleep at night, get peace of any kind,
That bird'll be the death of me, he's preyin' on me mind!
If I chase him long enough, I'll get 'im by and by,
And celebrate me vict'ry wit a girt big blackbird pie!

Where be it blackbird to? I know where he be,
He be up yon wurzel tree, and I be after he!
Now I sees he, and he sees I,
(Bugger'd) Brudder if I don't get 'en
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
'Ow's 'e, Fadder?
(Audience Answer) Alright!
