Topic tags/keywords: lumberjock monty python song

With apologies to Monty Python.

Thanks to some of our fellow lumberjocks for lyrics suggestions and encouragement.

BARBER:
I wanted to be… a Lumberjock!

Searching from yard to yard, angering the stockers at Lowes while I pick through the junk looking for grain. 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 online, we’d blog! blog! blog!

I’m a lumberjock, and I’m okay.
I blog all night and work wood all day!

Chorus:
He’s a lumberjock, and he’s okay.
He blogs all night and works wood all day!

BARBER:
I cut down trees, I eat my lunch.
Have sawdust in my beer,
On Wednesdays I go shopping
For tools I hold so dear.

Chorus:
He cut down trees, He eats his lunch,
Has sawdust in his beer.
On Wednesdays he goes shopping,
For tools he holds so dear.

He’s a lumberjock, and he’s okay.
He blogs all night and works wood all day!

BARBER:
I cut down trees, I mill some boards.
I like to press veneers,
I put on safety goggles,
and ear plugs in my ears

Chorus:
He cuts down trees, He mills some boards.
He likes to press veneers,
He puts on safety goggles,
and ear plugs in his ears.

He’s a lumberjock, and he’s okay.
He blogs all night and works wood all day!

BARBER:
I cut down trees. I wear silly aprons,
I have wood racks on my car.
I wish I’d started sooner,
Just like my dear Mama.

Chorus:
He cut down trees. He wears silly aprons,
He has wood racks on his car.
He wishes He’d started sooner,
Just like his dear Mama.

All:
He’s a lumberjock, and he’s okay.
He blogs all night and works wood all day!

He’s a lumberjock, and he’s okaaaaay.
He blogs all night and works wood all day!

Maybe too much sawdust in the beer?

A fitting tribute to and great spoof of the original. We should film it at the next pic-a-nic.

I don’t think anyone here looks like Eric Idle, or Eric the half a bee.

Thanks for this one Bob!

As a lover of Monty Python, I am absoluty stunned. I LOVE IT. I have often had this song roll through my head while in the shop. Now I know the right words! Scott, I can’t wait for the video from the picnic.

OK I’m gonna go have a beer – then maybe I’ll sing. Love the lyrics.

-- Bruce from Central New York...now, if you'll pardon me, I have some sawdust to make.

Have your say...
