The Lyrics

for those who are aware, the english just banned fox hunting. funny, since I met my Ellie, I havenet hunted a single fox either.
hounds are in the heather, and the fox us on the run,
the bay and yelp and bite it on the bum,
the horsemen ride, and the hunting time will come
hounds are in the heather and they all have fun

a fine old time just a way to pass a day
a dozen hounds are in upon the fray
no guns or spears we hunt the royal way
chasing up a fox is tally ho I say

hounds are in the heather, and the fox us on the run,
the bay and yelp and bite it on the bum,
the horsemen ride, and the hunting time will come
hounds are in the heather and they all have fun

I saw a bonny lassie and I asked her for her name,
I asked if she was fun, and maybe was she game?
she smiled so sweetly, from her mouth it came,
Yes!........ I killed her quickly, because game's all the same

hounds are in the heather, and the fox us on the run,
the bay and yelp and bite it on the bum,
the horsemen ride, and the hunting time will come
hounds are in the heather and they all have fun

as we neared the finish, all the dogs around a stump,
I think they treed one, nearly bit the rump
I'll eat fox meat, but then I have to dump
always it's a" beacher", first a splash then a thump

hounds are in the heather, and the fox us on the run,
the bay and yelp and bite it on the bum,
the horsemen ride, and the hunting time will come
hounds are in the heather and they all have fun
