Hunting Song
(lyrics by Tom Lehrer)


I always will remember
'Twas a year ago November
I went out to hunt some deer
On a morning bright and clear

I went and shot the maximum the Game Laws would allow:
Two Game Wardens, seven hunters, and a cow!

I was in no mood to trifle
I took down my trusty rifle
And went out to stalk my prey
What a haul I made that day!

I tied them to my fender and I drove them home somehow:
Two Game Wardens, seven hunters, and a cow!

The law was very firm, it
Took away my permit
The worst punishment I ever endured

It turned out there was a reason:
Cows were out of season
And one of the hunters wasn't insured

People ask me how I do it
And I say, "There's nothing to it!
I just stand there looking cute...
And when something moves, I shoot!"

And there's ten stuffed heads in my trophy room right now:
Two Game Wardens...
Seven hunters...
And a pure-bred Guernsey cow!

one of my favourite songs. If you have the 3 CD boxed set 'The Remains of Tom Lehrer', you can see the MAD magazine illustrated version.

"lehrer", so spelled.

In the couplet "I just stand there...", "I" should be "you" (twice).

Sigh. I meant, of course: "Lehrer", so spelled.

Whose law is it that if you post a correction you will make a mistake in it?
