Three men went a-hunting
But nothing could they find
Till they came across a moldy cheese
And that they left behind

The Englishman said "moldy cheese"
The Scotsman he said "nay"
"Bedad," says Pat, "its your grandpapa
And his whiskers are blown away

Three men went a-hunting
But nothing could they find
Till they came across a sailing ship
And that they left behind

The Englishman said "sailing ship"
The Scotsman he said "nay"
"Bedad," says Pat, "its a laundry tub
And the sheets are blowing away

Three men went a-hunting
But nothing could they find
Till they came across a milestone
And that they left behind

The Englishman said "milestone"
The Scotsman he said "nay"
"Bedad," says Pat. "its a plum pudding tree
And the currants are blown away"

Three men went a--hunting
But nothing could they find
Till they came across a tollgate
And that they left behind

The Englishman said "tollgate"
The Scotsman he said "nay"
"Bedad." says Pat, "its the end of the world
And the others have run away
