LUMBERJACK
Monty Python


BARBER:

I wanted to be... a lumberjack!


Leaping from tree to tree, as they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia. The Giant Redwood. The Larch. The Fir! The mighty Scots Pine! The lofty flowering Cherry! The plucky little Apsen! The limping Roo tree of Nigeria. The towering Wattle of Aldershot! The Maidenhead Weeping Water Plant! The naughty Leicestershire Flashing Oak! The flatulent Elm of West Ruislip! The Quercus Maximus Bamber Gascoigni! The Epigillus! The Barter Hughius Greenus!


With my best buddy by my side, we'd sing! Sing! Sing!


[singing]

I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay.

I sleep all night and I work all day.


MOUNTIES:

He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.

He sleeps all night and he works all day.


BARBER:

I cut down trees. I eat my lunch.

I go to the lavatory.

On Wednesdays I go shoppin'

And have buttered scones for tea.


MOUNTIES:

He cuts down trees. He eats his lunch.

He goes to the lavatory.

On Wednesdays he goes shopping

And has buttered scones for tea.


He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.

He sleeps all night and he works all day.


BARBER:

I cut down trees. I skip and jump.

I like to press wild flowers.

I put on women's clothing

And hang around in bars.


MOUNTIES:

He cuts down trees. He skips and jumps.

He likes to press wild flowers.

He puts on women's clothing

And hangs around in bars?!


He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.

He sleeps all night and he works all day.


BARBER:

I cut down trees. I wear high heels,

Suspendies, and a bra.

I wish I'd been a girlie,

Just like my dear Papa.


MOUNTIES:

He cuts down trees. He wears high heels,

Suspendies, and a bra?!


[talking]

What's this? Wants to be a girlie?! Oh, My!

And I thought you were so rugged! Poofter!...


[singing]

He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.

He sleeps all night
