WE WENT IN THE BUSH TO FIRE FIGHT

BUT THERE WAS NO FOOD TO BITE.

BUNCH OF US WERE ON A FIRE CREW

BUT WE HAD NOTHING TO CHEW.

SMOKE CHASED THE ANIMALS OFF

AND IT MADE US COUGH.

WE NEVER ATE FOR ONE WEEK

AN’ WE WERE GETTING WEAK.

SOMEONE FORGOT ABOUT THE GRUB

WE EVEN WISHED FOR A BEAR CUB.

WE WERE WAY UP THE RIVER

AN’ WE WISHED FOR CARIBOU LIVER.

THERE WAS NOTHING TO EAT

NOT EVEN BEAVER MEAT.

WE WERE ALL YOUNG BUCKS

BUT WE CRAVED FOR DUCKS.

I REALLY WISHED FOR A SNACK

EVEN FOR A COOKED WHISKYJACK.

WE WERE ON A HUNGER STRIKE

AND WE WISHED FOR A PIKE.

SOME OF US STARTED TO PANIC

‘CAUSE WE NEEDED BANNOCK.

WE STARTED TO CAUSE A RIOT

BECAUSE WE HAD NO DIET.

WE ALL MAKE IT OUT ALIVE

BUT IT WAS TOUGH TO SURVIVE.
