Oh, who told the Butcher
All about the Grey Goose?
Oh, it could have been the Poacher
Nobody knows

Or it could have been the Royal Coachman
Or Connemara Black
Just listen well to what the ladies say
And bring old Brownie back

And who told the Butcher
About the Lady Of The Lake?
It could have been the Queen Of The Water
Nobody knows

Or it could have been old Soldier Palmer
Or Teal and Black
Just listen well to what the ladies say
And bring old Brownie back

Come on, tie the damsels two to the droppers
And tie old Kate Mcclaren to the point
There's none so wise to the rise of the river
The Butcher's out there tonight

Come on, tie the damsels two to the droppers
And tie old Kate Mcclaren to the point
There's none so wise to the rise of the river
The Butcher's out there tonight
You know the Butcher's out there tonight

Oh, and who told the Butcher
All about the Grenadier?
It could have been the Teal and Green
Nobody knows

Or it could have been old Wickham's Fancy
Or Humpy Black
Just listen well to what the ladies say
And bring old Brownie back

Come on, tie the damsels two to the droppers
And tie old Kate Mcclaren to the point
There's none so wise to the rise of the river
The Butcher's out there tonight

Come on, tie the damsels two to the droppers
And tie old Kate Mcclaren to the point
There's none so wise to the rise of the river
The Butcher's out there tonight

The Butcher's out there tonight
The Butcher's out there tonight
