Vincent Bryan - Woodman, Woodman, Spare That Tree! Mahnı sözləri

(Irving Berlin and Vincent Bryan)

[1st verse:]
A great big tree grows near our house
It s been there quite some time
This tree s a slipp ry elm tree and very hard to climb
But when my wife starts after me, up in that tree I roost
I go up like a healthy squirrel and never need no boost
The other day a woodman came to chop the refuge down
And carve it into kindling wood, to peddle round the town
I says to him, "I pray thee cease, desist, refrain and stop
Lay down that razor, man, chop not a single chop"

Woodman, woodman, spare that tree
Touch not a single bough
For years it has protected me
And I ll protect it now
Chop down an oak, a birch or pine
But not this slipp ry elm of mine
It s the only tree that my wife can t climb
So spare that tree

[2nd verse:]
I said to him, "You see that hole
Up near that old treetop
I ve got five dollars there, that s yours, if you refrain to chop
No beast but me can climb that tree, cause it s too slippery
I can t get up myself, unless my wife is after me
So get my wife and I ll call her a very naughty word
And then you ll see me give an imitation of a bird
You may not know just where to go, when my wife gets around
But when she comes, remember this, if I m not on the ground"
Oxunub: 214 defe
