O to have been alive in the days of old
to walk the paths of Robin the Bold
To dwell in the wilds of Sherwood, free
and a bonnie practitioner of archire be.

To slay the Hine with grey goose shaft
and boldly in the sheriff's face laugh
To stroll through Sherwood with sparkling eye
or into Nottingham to purchase a pie.

To don a suit of Lincoln Green
so that by man or beast I not be seen
as I walk among Sherwood's deeps
to find an oak 'neath which to sleep.

To awake refreshed with the dawn
and tread again 'crost dew wet lawn
To see how tall that yew tree grew
since last, as a lad I wandered through.

To meet with my love 'neath flowered bower
To walk with her through soft spring shower.
To spy in the distance Locksley's Tower
From which Baron Locksley wielded power.

O to have been alive in the days of old.
To walk the paths of Robin the Bold
To dwell in the wilds of Sherwood, free
and a bonnie practitioner of archire be!
