Like to go a-moose hunting, hunting in the fall,
Like to go a-moose hunting, answer the hunting call:
"Gotta get me moose, b'y!"

Well first to get a moose licence you apply for six whole years,
At thirty-five dollars a crack, old man, with a partner for half shares;
And when you get the licence, "cock" 'tis area twenty-eight,
Nowhere near civ-il-i-zation, three hundred miles away.
But I gotta get me moose, b'y!!

Like to go a-moose hunting, hunting in the fall,
Like to go a-moose hunting, answer the hunting call:
"Gotta get me moose, b'y!"

To get ya where you're going it's a Hilton on four wheels,
Gets easily stuck, and the gas tank leaks and something up front squeals;
We met four fellas on a trip and we got on the beer,
They were on their way to our back yards and we was off to theirs.
Gotta get me moose b'y!!

Like to go a-moose hunting, hunting in the fall,
Like to go a-moose hunting, answer the hunting call:
"Gotta get me moose, b'y!"

Trottin' on the bogs for miles with a pack sack on your back,
And you know he's always just ahead, the fresh buttons in his tracks;
Well maybe he can hear us, b'ys, or maybe it's his snout...
I allow it's not hard to get a whiff of we after five or six days out!
Hah! Gotta get me moose, b'y!!

Like to go a-moose hunting, hunting in the fall,
Like to go a-moose hunting, answer the hunting call:
"Gotta get me moose, b'y!"

At last we saw a great big bull and oh my, what a fuss!
Fired ten shots and had to run! He started chasing us. Hah!
But when we got him killed, me lads, I had to panch his gut!
My manly hunting instinct left and me supper all heaved up.
Whoop! Gotta get me moose b'y!!

Like to go a-moose hunting, hunting in the fall,
Like to go a-moose hunting, answer the hunting call:
"Gotta get me moose, b'y!"

Jack, we got to lug 'im out, you were fine to have along,
But my next partner will be a wrestler, twice as big and strong;
And never again will I go out across the bog so far,
I'll wait till I sees one on the road and I'll wing 'im with me car!!
Hah! That's how I'll get me moose, b'y!!

Like to go a-moose hunting, hunting in the fall,
Like to go a-moose hunting, answer the hunting call:
"Gotta get me moose, b'y!"
