Tune—‘‘Chalk Farm to Camberwell Green”

THERE is a wood at the top of a hill,
If it’s not shifted it’s standing there still;
There is a farm a short distance away,
But I’d not advise you to go there by day,
For the snipers abound, and the shells are not rare,
And a man’s only chance is to run like a hare,
So take my advice if you’re chancing your arm
From High Wood to Waterlot Farm.

Chorus—High Wood to Waterlot Farm,
ChorusAll on a summer’s day,
ChorusUp you get to the top of the trench
ChorusThough you’re sniped at all the way.
ChorusIf you’ve got a smoke helmet there
ChorusYou’d best put it on if you could,
ChorusFor the wood down by Waterlot Farm
ChorusIs a bloody high wood.
