Every town has it's ups and downs
But sometimes ups outnumber the downs
But not in Knottingham
And I'm inclined to believe
That if we weren't so down
We'd up and leave
That we'd up and fly if we had wings for flyin'
Can't you see the tears we're cryin'?
Won't there be some happiness for me?
Well, not in Knottingham

Robin Hood and Little John
Running through the forest
Laughing back and forth at what the other has to say
Reminiscing this and that
And having such a good time
Oo-de-lolly, oo-de-lolly, golly what a day
Never ever thinking there was danger in the water
They were drinking it and gizzling it down
Never dreaming that a scheming sheriff and his posse
Were a-watching them and gatherin' around
Robing Hood and Little John
Running through the forest
Jumping fences dodging bushes
Tryin' to get away
Contemplating nothing but escape and finally making it
Oo-de-lolly, oo-de-lolly, golly what a day
Oo-de-lolly, oo-de-lolly, golly what a day
