'The Lincolnshire Poacher'

  1. Version 1
  2.  
  3. When I was bound apprentice in famous Lincolnshire
  4. I served my master truly for nearly seven long year
  5. Till I took up to poaching as you shall quickly hear
  6. Oh it's my delight on a shiny night in the season of the year
  7.  
  8. As me and my companions were setting up a snare
  9. The game-keeper was watching us for him we did not care
  10. For we can wrestle and fight my boys jump over anywhere
  11. Oh it's my delight on a shiny night in the season of the year
  12.  
  13. As me and my companions were setting four and five
  14. And taking of them up again we took a hare alive
  15. We popped her into a bag my boys and through the woods did steer
  16. Oh it's my delight on a shiny night in the season of the year
  17.  
  18. We threw her over our shoulders and wandered through the town
  19. We called into a neighbours house and sold her for a crown
  20. We sold her for a crown my boys but I did'nt tell you where
  21. Oh it's my delight on a shiny night in the season of the year
  22.  
  23. Well here's success to poaching for I do think it fair
  24. Bad luck to every game - keeper that would not to sell his deer
  25. Good luck to every house - keeper that wants to buy a hare
  26. Oh it's my delight on a shiny night in the season of the year
  1. Version 2
  2.  
  3. When I was bound apprentice in famous Lincolnshire,
  4. Full well I serv'd my master, for more then seven year,
  5. Till I took up to poaching, as you shall quickly hear.
  6. Oh, 'tis my delight on a shining night, in the season of the year.
  7.  
  8. As me and my companions were setting of a snare,
  9. 'Twas then we spied the game-keeper - for him we did not care.
  10. For we can wrestle and fight, my boys, and jump o'er anywhere.
  11. Oh, 'tis my delight on a shining night in the season of the year.
  12.  
  13. As me and my companions were setting four or five,
  14. And taking on 'em up again, we caught a hare alive,
  15. We took the hare alive, my boys, and through the woods did steer.
  16. Oh, 'tis my delight on a shining night in the season of the year.
  17.  
  18. I threw him on my shoulder, and then we trudged home,
  19. We took him to a neighbour's house, and sold him for a crown,
  20. We sold him for a crown, my boys, but I did not tell you where.
  21. Oh, 'tis my delight on a shining night in the season of the year.
  22.  
  23. Bad luck to every magistrate that lives in Lincolnshire.
  24. Success to every poacher that wants to sell a hare,
  25. Bad luck to every game-keeper that will not sell his deer.
  26. Oh, 'tis my delight on a shining night in the season of the year.
