The Unhappy Wanderer (Larry Arno, NYC) I hate to go a-wandering, along the mountain track For every step I take I know, my pack will break my back. Fal-de-ree, fal-de-ra, fal-de-ree, fal-de-ra-ha-ha-ha-ha Fal-de-ree, my pack will break my back I shake my fist at all I meet, and they curse back at me I hope some city slicker breaks - his ankle on the scree (use this as cho. I love to paddle in the stream, it sparkles bright and sweet I hope those tourists down below - can taste my sweaty feet. My sleeping bag is icy cold, the rocks they pierce right through I hope some kindly providence - will wish it all on you I cut my finger chopping wood, my hair the fire has singed I hope some ranger rescues me - ere I become unhinged. (style note - final chorus should do the ha-ha parts in a loud insane screech)  I learned it as "Mis-er-ree! etc. To the tune of "I Love to Go A-Wandering"- XX
