A-Hunting We Will Go” lyrics

1.A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go,
Heigh ho, the dairy-o, a-hunting we will go
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. A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go
Heigh ho, the dairy-o, a-hunting we will go
A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go
We’ll catch a fish and put him on a dish
And then we’ll let him go.

3. A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go
Heigh ho, the dairy-o, a-hunting we will go
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. A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go
Heigh ho, the dairy-o, a-hunting we will go
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
Heigh ho, the dairy-o, a-hunting we will go
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.
