3 Wild Boar (3) 1. There is a wild boar in these woods Da doo dum die, da diddle um day There is a wild boar in these woods Doo dum diddle I day There is a wild boar in these woods Kills our men and drinks their blood How de dow diddle um day Da doo dum diddle I day. (similarly:) 2. We followed the wild boar to his den, Found the bones of a thousand men. 3. The hunters on the wild boar fell, Fought three hours like fiends from hell. 4. We hunted the boar with a spear and knife, There we took that young boar's life. (repeat first verse) Child #18 JB
