One, two, three, four

It's almost over, it's almost done
And you can't put the blame on anyone
It's almost easy and it's almost fun
Did you get caught with your britches on?

Hi, derry day in the month of May
Was the song the minstrel sang
To the good of Robin Hood
Maid Marion and all the gang

His aim was mean and his shot was clean
And his suit was the shade of evergreen
The folks he knew, hadn't naught to fear
When the sheriff was there, they were over here

Hi, derry doon in the month of June
Was the song the minstrel sung
To the good of Robin Hood's
Good name and a place to run

He loved strong ale and a run down jail
Was the kind of a scene where he never failed
There was no man on the sea or land
Who could get Maid Marion on the trail

Hi, derry day in the month of May
Was the song the minstrel sang
To the good of Robin Hood
Maid Marion and all the gang

It's almost over, it's almost done
And you can't put the blame on Marion
She almost made it to the friar's gate
But the old wooden bridge wouldn't elevate

Hi, derry doon in the month of June
Was the song the minstrel sung
To the good of Robin Hood's
Good name and a place to run
