The Happy Brambler

I love to go a-brambling

Along the Poets’ Walk

And as I go I sometimes sing

But hardly ever talk

 

Val-deri, val-dera

Val-deri, val-dera

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

Val-deri, val-dera

I hardly ever talk

 

If walkers ever ask me

I tell them what I do

I’m helping out the group called Friends

And they say, Good on you

 

Val-deri, val-dera

Val-deri, val-dera

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

Val-deri, val-dera

And they say, Good on you

 

I snip off all the spiky shoots

But leave the pretty flowers

For blackberries will soon appear

As long as we have showers

 

Val-deri, val-dera

Val-deri, val-dera

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

Val-deri, val-dera

As long as we have showers
