ANGUS MAC FERGUS MAC TAVISH DUNDEE:




1) I know a wee squirrel who lives in an oak.
He loves a good lunch and he loves a good joke.
There’s a wee bit of scotch in his family tree;
He’s Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee,
Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee.

 

2) Of chestnuts and acorns he’s gathered a store,
Although he has plenty, he gathers still more
For he has them for breakfast and luncheon and tea,
Young Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee,
Young Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee


3) His brothers and sisters and uncles and aunts
Quite often will gather and have a fine dance.
And they leap through the air with hilarious glee
With Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee,
With Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee.


4) Once while they were dancing a hunter came by
And all of those dancers the hunter did spy!
And he lifted his rifle and aimed carefull-ee
At Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee,
At Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dunde


5) The rifle went off with a terrible blast
But Angus MacFergus was faster than fast -
And the bullet went deep in that poor old oak tree,
But it never touched Angus MacFergus Dundee,
It never touched Angus MacFergus Dundee.


6) The hunter looked ’round and the squirrels were gone,
Of all of those dancers there wasn’t a one -
They were all safely hid in that friendly oak tree;
With Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee,
With Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee.


7) I often imagine that I’d like to be
A bonnie wee squirrel and live in a tree;
Pay no rent and no taxes and get my lunch free
Like Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee,
Like Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee
