The Lyrics

Now we've cut 'em down and dragged
With a chain to water there
Won't you please come to our log roll
Much hew-ing !
In mill pond that's where we breed 'em
Till we turn 'em into chairs
Won't you please come to our log roll
Take a step and try to cling !

We can make 'em whirl
Spin, gyrate and twirl
Ooops - flying...
In the water !

Exposition: make 'em go 'round
It's nothing to adhere !
Won't you please come to our log roll
Dress in plaid !
Lumberjacks will help you
So don't spurn another beer
Won't you please come to our log roll
And enjoy the lily pads

We can make (yes we can make) 'em swirl
And amaze (we engage) the girls (Ooops - flying!)
They don't believe our prowess (Ooops - flying!)
And we can't conceive we'd need 'em (Ooops - flying!)
Let a man live a lone life (Ooops - flying!)
Woodsy relaxation's our credo
Sappin' from the pores

Somehow timber must spin free
My rolling way's attuned
Won't you please come to our log roll
Mind the sluice !
For a lot of spinning motion
Will be found in our lagoon
Won't you please come to our log roll
Take a chance - rotate that spruce !

From the Grange (yes from the Grange) we thrilled
Take log stage (take log stage), we're skilled (Ooops - flying!)
Kinda naive and rustic (Ooops - flying!)
Greenies all say we mistreat 'em (Ooops - flying!)
Tree huggers: get your own life (Ooops - flying!)
Turns and revolutions, we speed 'em
Orbit all the boards...

As one who suffers from logorrhea, this excellent parody had just the right amount of logginess and reminded me to watch my trees and sluice!
