The Lumberjack Song Lyrics

I'm a lumberjack
And I'm O.K.
I sleep all night
And I work all day.

(chorus)
He's a lumberjack
And he's O.K.
He sleeps all night
And he works all day.

I cut down trees
I eat my lunch
I go to the lavatory
On Wednesdays I go shopping
And have buttered scones for tea.

(mounties)
He cuts down trees
He eats his lunch
He goes to the lavatory
On Wednesdays he goes shopping
And has buttered scones for tea.

(chorus)

I cut down trees
I skip and jump
I like to press wild flowers
I put on women's clothing
And hang around in bars.

(mounties)
He cuts down trees
He skips and jumps
He likes to press wild flowers
He puts on women's clothing
And hangs around in bars?

(chorus)

I cut down trees
I wear high heels
Suspendies and a bra
I wish I'd been a girly
Just like my dear papa.

(mounties)
He cuts down trees
He wears high heels?
Suspendies ... and a bra?

...He's a lumberjack
And he's O K A Y
He sleeps all night
And he works all day.

...He's a lumberjack
And he's O K A Y
He sleeps all night
And he works all day.

This song is about the changing of society's values towards acceptance of transvestites. As the song so elegantly illustrates, we are almost to the point of finally accepting those whose style is a little different, but not quite. The background singers, Canadian mounties to represent the common man, make it through two and a half verses before faltering and stopping the song. Though they do come back and finish out the chorus (more a gesture of kindness rather than one of acceptance), it is their reluctance to accept the narrator's eccentricities that makes this song one of the most relevant, powerful, and moving depictions of life as a transvestite that this world has ever seen.

Ah, who am I kidding. It's just Monty Python at their goofy best. Great song.

For those of you in Boy Scouts, we named our patrol the Lumberjacks, in memory of this song. We wanted to use the song at our patrol yell, but our Scoutmaster wouldn't let us. Otherwise, awesome!
