Lumberjack Lyrics

Artist: Monty Python

I wanted to be... a lumberjack!

Leaping from tree to tree, as they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia. The Giant Redwood. The Larch. The Fir! The mighty Scots Pine! The lofty flowering Cherry! The plucky little Apsen! The limping Roo tree of Nigeria. The towering Wattle of Aldershot! The Maidenhead Weeping Water Plant! The naughty Leicestershire Flashing Oak! The flatulent Elm of West Ruislip! The Quercus Maximus Bamber Gascoigni! The Epigillus! The Barter Hughius Greenus!

With my best buddy by my side, we'd sing! Sing! Sing!

I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay.
I sleep all night and I work all day.

He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees. I eat my lunch.
I go to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays I go shoppin'
And have buttered scones for tea.

He cuts down trees. He eats his lunch.
He goes to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays he goes shopping
And has buttered scones for tea.

He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees. I skip and jump.
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women's clothing
And hang around in bars.

He cuts down trees. He skips and jumps.
He likes to press wild flowers.
He puts on women's clothing
And hangs around in bars?!

He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees. I wear high heels,
Suspendies, and a bra.
I wish I'd been a girlie,
Just like my dear Papa.

He cuts down trees. He wears high heels,
Suspendies, and a bra?!

What's this? Wants to be a girlie?! Oh, My!
And I thought you were so rugged! Poofter!...

He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

He's a lumberjack, and he's okaaaaay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

Uh...yeah, gaybo. Anyway, I've been a fan since the mid-1970s and I still catch myself singing this. A favorite of my 12 year old as well.

I love it--great for taking the piss out of the self-styled macho men!
by BellySpoon on 5/28/2010 3:05am
whats wrong with wearing high heals if your a guy? gaybo, . . . . . . . your a twat.
by Milkmandude56 on 5/28/2010 3:05am
Gaybo can suck my toes :)wearing womans clothing is fine I think!
by .QWERTYUIOPASDFG on 8/4/2010 7:08pm
same whats wrong with wearing womans clothing?????

LOL this song is cool you all should look at the black night and the dead parrot....they have alot of great video clips and this video clip is really funny on you tub!!!!!!!!!!

These old MP skits help keep me sane. The song's hilarious and I don't think poking fun at cross-dressing, per say. It's a comic irony of what we think is the big tough lumberjack vs.this particular jack, who's a little different. I hum that tune when the going gets rough and it makes me laugh.
by kathleen on 12/11/2010 11:23am
By the way, I read gaybo's comment and couldn't understand a word. Does he just not like it, or is some "of de old scotsdale" simply much funnier by comparison?
by Shad on 1/29/2011 1:05am
Gotta love Monty Python no doubt about it
by Shad on 1/29/2011 1:06am
Funny I noticed a lot of the comments are close together lol

(Within the same month range, just pointing it out)

im looking up some of these words on google and I dont get a single search as to what they mean..."apsen"? "Leicestershire Flashing Oak"? "Epigillus"? "Elm of West Ruislip"? Im guessing these are made up names of which I am missing out on the joke...-_-
by Taz on 12/18/2011 3:55pm
@Bob O, Yes, made up but with a very British sense of humour thrown in. For instance, "The Quercus Maximus Bamber Gascoigni" is referring to a BBC TV presenter known as Bamber Gascoigne, but using the name to make the tree sound more exotic :)

Love the song. I found myself whistling the tune at work today. Had to look up the lyrics. Funny shit
by Woodsy on 4/29/2013 6:40pm
I used to sing this to my kids when they were little. YES, I changed the words some.
Just to be safe...
Great song and skit! Definitely a M.P. classic.

It's comedy, whether u like or not, live with it. I happen 2b a huge fan, along with League of Gentlemen, Black books, Nighty Night, etc, that's just my humour. Stop with the wingeing. I have many male friends who wear dtesses & take this song as light hearted fun.
by whut on 8/6/2014 8:47am
Earth, it's a joke.
So stop acting like it's true.

Hey this is the fist comment in 2015. I shall not go down in history as the greatest dog in all time!

This skit and the Village Idiot were my all time Monty Python favorites.
by BOB (Not my real name lolz) on 12/8/2015 4:25pm
I like big but and i can not deny

Many years ago a strange man knocked on my door in a block of flats in Walton-on-Thames and asked, "can I throw Lord Nelson out of your 9th floor window?"
Oh the fame. The fame!

It's 2017
by chuck on 4/21/2017 3:39pm
strange but funny at the time, but quite normal now
by Gaybo(y) on 12/15/2017 9:07pm
Pretty certain this poofter is in the closet. Isn't that right Gaybo? get a grip mate.
by Limbering Jack on 1/5/2018 12:46am
I've been following this thread for many years now and finally plucked up courage to meke a comment after being frightened on New Year's Day by the naughty Leicestershire Flashing Oak.
by Lumber Jack on 1/18/2018 1:29pm
Oh! Get a life. It’s a nonsense rhyme, nothing to do with poofters, Lord Nelson, Or anybody at all.
