5     The music of our burnished ax
shall make the woods resound, And many a lofty ancient Pine
will tumble to the ground; At night, ho! round our good camp-fire
we will sing while the rude winds blow: 0! we'll range the wild woods over while a lumbering we go; And a lumbering we'll go,
so a lumbering will go, 0! we'll range the wild woods over while a lumbering we go.

and the ice-bound streams are free, We'll run our logs to market,
then haste our friends to see; How kindly true hearts welcome us,
our wives and children too, We will spend with these the summer, and once more a lumbering go; And a lumbering we'll go, so a lumbering will go, We will spend with these the summer, and once more a lumbering go,
7     And when upon the long-hid soil
the white Pines disappear, We will cut the other forest trees, and sow whereon we clear;
