So you're hunting for anne well i'm looking for will
did you look for him own by the old swimming hole
i'd be worse than a fool to have never looked there
and you couldn't well miss will's carroty hair

It seems like i just heard your annabel screech
have you hunted her round by the rasberry patch
i have hunted her low and i've hunted her high
and that pretty pink pinafore'd knock out your eye

Well maybe she's up to some tricks with my bill
as long as there's haymows you never can tell
as long as theres ladies my annie is one
and she wouldn't be seen with the likes of your son

And who but your daughter i'm asking yes who
but that sly little bitch could have showed billy how
your bastard boy must have learned what he knows
from his slut of a mother i rather suppose

Will's dad never gave me one cent in his life
but he fell for a whore when he married his wife
and here is a riddle for you red says
it ain't his daughter her father lays

Black hell upon you and all filthy men
come annabel darling come annie come ann
she's coming right now in the raspberry patch
and twas me that she asked would it hurt very much

And twas me that looked up at my willy and you
in the newmown hay and he telling you no
then look you down through that old swimming hole
there'll be slime in his eyes and a stone in his soul.
