On Hounslow Heath as I rode on
I spied a lawyer riding before
"Kind sir," said I, "Aren't you afraid
Of Turpin that mischievous blade?"
Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh

Said Turpin, "He'll ne'er find me out
I've hid my money in my boot"
The lawyer said, "There's none can find
I hid my gold in my cape behind"
Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh

As they were riding past the mill
Turpin commands him to stand still
Says, "Here your coat I must get off
My mare needs a saddle cloth"
Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh

This caused the lawyer much to fret
To see how simply he'd been took
But Turpin robbed him of his store
Because he knew he'd lie for more
Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin oh
