No. 10 - Song - Joe and Sam - "Poaching."

MIDI File

Joe & Sam: Poaching is a dangerous career,
That's what makes it fascinate you,
Keepers may be often very near,
Dogs are apt to irritate you.
Night time is the very best of all,
Times for coursing and a-snaring
But a number one shot
makes a hole in quite a lot,
So be careful what you are a-wearing.
When you start to go a-poaching
And there's someone stealthily approaching,
Underneath the trees on hands and knees
You must lie down upon the ground,
Though a rabbit you may be admiring,
You must not begin to think of firing
Like a dummy on your poor damp tummy...
Sh! (spoken) Still not a word, not a sound.
   
  Pheasants are amusing little things,
But not ready till the season,
Once they start to use their little wings
Poachers can't see any reason
Why they shouldn't be their very own
Grouse, hare, plover, duck, or partridge,
For it's mighty fine sport
if the larder's rather short
And there's no real need to use a cartridge.
When you start to go a-poaching
And there's someone stealthily approaching,
Underneath the trees on hands and knees
You must lie down upon the ground,
Though a rabbit you may be admiring,
You must not begin to think of firing
Like a dummy on your poor damp tummy...
Sh! (spoken) Still not a word, not a sound.
