WHEN Autumn shakes the rambo-tree --
It's a long, sweet way across the orchard! --
The bird sings low as the bumblebee --
It's a long, sweet way across the orchard! --
The poor shote-pig he says, says he:
"When Autumn shakes the rambo-tree
There's enough for you and enough for me." --
It's a long, sweet way across the orchard.

For just two truant lads like we,
When Autumn shakes the rambo-tree
There's enough for you and enough for me --
It's a long, sweet way across the orchard.

When Autumn shakes the rambo-tree --
It's a long, sweet way across the orchard! --
The mole digs out to peep and see --
It's a long, sweet way across the orchard! --
The dusk sags down, and the moon swings free,
There's a far, lorn call, "Pig-gee! Pig-gee!"
And two boys -- glad enough for three. --
It's a long, sweet way across the orchard.

For just two truant lads like we,
When Autumn shakes the rambo-tree
There's enough for you and enough for me --
It's a long, sweet way across the orchard.
