lyrics

Come all you young sportsmen who love to chase the fox,
And we'll go chase the reindeer all through the hills and rocks.

Come-a-hoot, come-a-hoot, come-a-hollow
All around the merry stream.
Come-a-ring, ting, ting and a hip, tip, tip
And away go the rolling bow-wow dogs
And a hoodle, doodle do
And a bugle horn and a tide-dee-oh
And through the woods we run, now boys,
Through the woods we run.

I came upon a blind man, blind as he could be.
He said he saw the reindeer run up a hollow tree.

I came upon a terrapin, crawling through the mud.
He said he saw the reindeer washed away in the flood.

I came upon a boatman, dipping out his boat.
He said he saw the reindeer run up the river float.

Come all you young sportsmen who love to chase the fox,
And we'll go chase the reindeer all through the hills and rocks.
