Grey Goose

One Sunday morning, the preacher went a'hunting
He carried along his shotgun, and along came a grey goose
Gun went a'boom-boom, and down come the grey goose
Six weeks of falling, he was six weeks a'hauling

Then my wife and your wife, him a'feather picking
He was six weeks a'pickin', then they put him on the parboil
He was six weeks a'boilin', and they put him on the table
The knife wouldn't cut him, no the knife wouldn't cut him

No the knife wouldn't cut him, so they took him to the hog pen
But the hog couldn't eat him, no the hog wouldn't eat him
So they took him to the saw mill, but the saw couldn't eat him
And the last time I saw him, he was flying across the ocean

Yeah the last time I saw him, he was flying across the ocean
With a long string a'goslin', and they're all going quack-quack
Yeah they're all going quack-quack, and they're all going quack-quack
And he broke the hog's teeth out, and he broke the hog's teeth out

And he broke the saw's teeth out, and he broke the saw's teeth out
And the last time I saw him, he was flying across the ocean
Flying across the ocean, with a long string a'goslin'
And they're all going quack-quack, yeah they're all going quack-quack
