In The Woods (Buddy Wasisname)

You can sing if you want,
you can take off your clothes,
Howl at the moon, or you can preach or propose;
Deliver a sermon to the heathens on Mars,
Hide in the goudy, eat fat chocolate bars.

Swing from a branch, hang upside down,
Pretend for a moment you're the world's best clown;
Using yellow ink you can doodle in the snow,
Or give a throng speech to an old black crow.

In the woods, in the woods,
Some darn good in the woods;
In the woods, in the woods,
You can do all the things that you should...
in the woods.

You can boil the kettle, eat two big lunches,
Curse the boss up in heaps and bunches;
Whistle, you can yodel, do a therapeutic scream,
Blow off in the wind, or you can widdle in a stream.

Recite bad poetry, imagine you're a king,
Fly like a robin with imaginary wings;
Chirp like a chickadee, or grumble like crow,
You can even poke your head
down a black bear's hole.

In the woods, in the woods,
Some darn good in the woods;
In the woods, in the woods,
You can do all the things that you should...
in the woods.

You can make weird faces,
you can lick out your tongue,
Imagine that you're old,
or pretend that you're young;
Swim in a river, or dabble in a pool,
But if you imitate a cow,
you'd better run from the bull.

In the woods, in the woods,
Some darn good in the woods;
In the woods, in the woods,
You can do all the things that you should...
in the woods.

In the woods, in the woods,
Some darn good in the woods;
In the woods, in the woods,
You can do all the things that you should...
in the woods.

Wayne Chaulk informed GEST that goudy is a low-lying bush which grows almost everywhere in Newfoundland and gives off a beautiful fragrance when covered with morning dew. In the Dictionary of Newfoundland English it is spelled gold-withy.
