"Can't Help Felling a Lovely Yew"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

Pine and Bay, Oak an’ Spruce, Aspen,
But I can’t help felling a lovely Yew.
Elm I take just for the askin’,
But I can’t help felling a lovely Yew.

Once this river flowed surely to the sea;
Now no more it goes
Due to the work of me.
Make fine dams; make fine polders too,
’cause I can’t help felling a lovely Yew.

Once this river flowed strongly to the sea;
Now no more it goes—
It’s just not meant to be.
Make fine hats; make fine coats, wraps too.
Now I can’t yelp. . .swell-looking duds on you.
