  • Song Lyrics:
    I always will remember,
    'Twas a year ago November,
    I went out to hunt some deer
    On a morning bright and clear.
    I went and shot the maximum the game laws would allow:
    Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.

    I was in no mood to trifle,
    I took down my trusty rifle
    And went out to stalk my prey.
    What a haul I made that day!
    I tied them to my fender, and I drove them home somehow:
    Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.

    The law was very firm, it
    Took away my permit,
    The worst punishment I ever endured.
    It turned out there was a reason,
    Cows were out of season,
    And one of the hunters wasn't insured.

    People ask me how I do it,
    And I say "There's nothin' to it,
    You just stand there lookin' cute,
    And when something moves, you shoot!"
    And there's ten stuffed heads in my trophy room right now:
    Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.

    Yes, the law was very firm, it
    Took away my permit,
    The worst punishment I ever endured.
    It turned out there was a reason,
    Cows were out of season,
    And one of the hunters wasn't insured.

    People ask me how I do it,
    And I say "There's nothin' to it,
    You just stand there lookin' cute,
    And when something moves, you shoot!"
    And there's ten stuffed heads in my trophy room right now:
    Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a pure-bred Guernsey cow.
