Where be it blackbird to? I know where he be,
He be up yon wurzel tree, and I be after he!
Now I sees he, and he sees I,
Bugger'd if I don't get 'en
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down,
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
'Ow's 'e, Fadder?
[Audience Answer] Alright!

All me life I'm on the farm, workin' for me keep,
Tendin' pigs and chickens, and they cows and sheep;
But everywhere I workin', there's one who always mocks me,
He's hidin' somewhere in the trees, blackbird I'll 'ave 'ee!

Where be it blackbird to? I know where he be,
He be up yon wurzel tree, and I be after he!
Now I sees he, and he sees I,
Bugger'd if I don't get 'en
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down,
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
'Ow's 'e, Fadder?
[Audience Answer] Alright!

Underneath the open sky in spring we loves to dine,
We likes to 'ear the flappin' of the missus washin' line;
We listens to a tuneful song, a blackbird or a tit,
But on me vest and underpants he scored a direct hit!

Where be it blackbird to? I know where he be,
He be up yon Wurzel tree, and I be after he!
Now I sees he, and he sees I,
Bugger'd if I don't get 'en
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down,
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
'Ow's 'e, Fadder?
[Audience Answer] Alright!

If I goes out poachin', a creepin' through the fields,
With me old retriever, a followin' at me heels;
If I aim me shotgun at a pheasant in the hay,
That bloody blackbird starts his row and frightens 'im away!

Where be it blackbird to? I know where he be,
He be up yon wurzel tree, and I be after he!
Now I sees he, and he sees I,
Bugger'd if I don't get 'en
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down,
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
'Ow's 'e, Fadder?
[Audience Answer] Alright!

No longer can I sleep at night, get peace of any kind,
That bird'll be the death of me, preyin' on me mind!
If I chase him long enough, I'll get 'im by and by,
And celebrate me vict'ry wit a girt big blackbird pie!

Where be it blackbird to? I know where he be,
He be up yon wurzel tree, and I be after he!
Now I sees he, and he sees I,
Bugger'd if I don't get 'en
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down,
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
Wit a girt big stick I'll knock 'im down,
Blackbird I'll 'ave he!
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
'Ow's 'e, Fadder?
[Audience Answer] Alright!

The British scrumpy and western band, Adge Cutler and The Wurzels (1966-1974) was renamed The Wurzels after a traffic accident caused the death of Alan John Cutler [1931-1974], and was prominent in the 1970s with recordings of comic songs performed in a localised accent.
