axeman: fiddle wish wood

wishbone
wishbone wood
doesn’t want to be split

axe-man work
for your warm

wishbone wood
has got a fiddleback middle
good luck you
splitting that

axe-man
good luck to you

a fork in the wood
is a wishbone growing
like this
and like that

growing every way
that is this
and that is that

axeman
drive your splitter in

axeman
do it again and again

axeman axeman
drive
and drive

drive your splitter
right in

wishbone wood
doesn’t want to be split

it’s got
fiddleback
