The Lyrics

It has to be yew,
it has to be yew.
Pine isn’t fine,
Fir doesn’t stir,
Oak just won’t do.
Maple I exclude,
though it yields sweet food.
Black Walnut is bad,
Hemlock is sad…
dampens my mood.

On Ash I ain’t keen…
grain has too much sheen.
Out Beech I toss,
Birch makes me cross.
No Spruce that’s blue!

You’ll find nothing else
in my wood mill.
It’s all I want;
it give me chills.
It has to be yew,
wood that I hew—
I’ll hack some for you.
