Thread Name: Lyr Req: parody on the story of Robin Hood
Subject: Lyr Add: ROBIN HOOD (Louis Prima)
As recorded by Louis Prima, 1944.

Many long years ago, a fellow named Robin Hood,
He used to rob the rich, most ev'ry chance he could.
Now you shouldn't get me wrong because he was no square.
With his trusty bow and arrow he could part your hair.

His partner was Little John; another was Allan Dale.
A hundred and forty more, together they hit the trail.
They would scamper through the forest to the Blue Boar Inn.
Mr. Eden (?) told them where they should begin.

He took from the rich man,
And gave it to the poor man.
Had a fear for no man,
Only for his chick whose name was Mary Ann.

And here is the switcheroo of Rob and his loyal crew:
King Richard forgave them all, and here's what they had to do:
They became his loyal rangers and were very good.
So that ends our little tale of Robin Hood.
