Does anyone know how the lyrics go and what they mean. ----Rasta----

Anybody got the lyrics for this Kingston Trio number?

Clicky

The folks get rather weary of my going about singing the first three words and then yelling 'hooyah!' since I don't know the rest.....

Is that a virus-free site? I am always horribly paranoid about going to lyrics sites like that because of the horrid things my computer picks up. :/

Here's the Kingston Trio recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEaEV2TeEJU

Is this recording by Anne Belier more credible? The song is attributed to Lionel Belasco - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6K6d8eLn0kg
