Robin Hood

Most archers, and even normal people, are probably aware of the existence of a song called Robin Hood. Just for the hell of it, here are the lyrics in all their glory:


Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men
Feared by the bad, loved by the good
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, Robin Hood

He called the greatest archers to a tavern on the green
They vowed to help the people of the King
They handled all the trouble on the English country scene
And still found plenty of time to sing


He came to Sherwood Forest with a feather in his cap
A fighter never looking for a fight
His bow was always ready and he kept his arrows sharp
He used them to fight for what was right


If the lyrics aren't enough for you, you can download robhood.wav (588Kb), which is a wave file containing the song in its original format.

Weetabix version

UK viewers may also remember the Weetabix advert that used a comedy version of the song. The lyrics consisted of the chorus followed by:

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, could be in a fix
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, spies the Weetabix
Does he retreat, back to Sherwood?
Course he should, course he should, course he should

Enjoy that, did you? You might also want to check out my page of children's songs, which has a lot more lyrics like these ones.
