“A-Hunting We Will Go” is a British song written by Thomas Arne for the 1777 production of John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera at Covent Garden in London. It later became a popular folk song and nursery rhyme.

Its melody and lyrics are quite similar to the ones of  “The farmer in the dell”.


 

A-Hunting We Will Go” lyrics

1. Oh, a-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go,
We’ll catch a fox and put him in a box
And then we’ll let him go.

2. Oh, a-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go
We’ll catch a cat and put her on a hat
And then we’ll let him go.

3. Oh, a-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go
We’ll catch a bear and cut his hair
And then we’ll let him go.

4. Oh, a-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go
We’ll catch a pig and dance a little jig
And then we’ll let him go

5. A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go
We’ll catch a giraffe and make him laugh
And then we’ll let him go.
