Lyrics

Robin Hood and Little John
Walkin' through the forest
Laughin' back and forth
At what the other'n has to say

Reminiscin' this-n-that
An' havin' such a good time
Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
Golly, what a day

Never ever thinkin' there was danger in the water
They were drinkin', they just guzzled it down
Never dreamin' that a schemin' Sheriff and his posse
Was a-watchin' them an' gatherin' around

Robin Hood and Little John
Runnin' through the forest
Jumpin' fences, dodgin' trees
An' tryin' to get away

Contemplatin' nothing
But escape an' finally makin' it
Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
Golly, what a day

(Repeated in sing-along version)

Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
Golly, what a day
