|The gay raftsmen,||oh where||are they ?|
|The gay raft||smen,||oh||where are||they?|
|To||winter camps they're||on their||way.|
|Bing on the||ring!||Bang on the||ring!|
|Hear the raftsmen||loudly||sing!|
|Bing on the||ring! Bing,||bang! (Hey)|
Across Bytown they went today, (twice)
They've packed their grub, they cannot stay.
In bark canoes they make their way; (twice)
They reach the camp and shout, "Hurray!"
When meal time comes the men all say, (twice)
"It's pork and beans again today."
Their axes sharp, with no delay, (twice)
They swing and strike, the tall trees sway.
The logs they trim and drag away, (twice)
To drive down when the ice gives way.
In spring they draw their winter's pay, (twice)
And go back home on holiday.
To greet them come their ladies gay, (twice)
Who help them spend their hard-earned pay.
