Lord of the Forest-O

Can be sung to the tune of The Raggle Taggle Gypsies. This is the gay version. Click here for the straight version.
That night the wind blowed wild-O,
And the young man came to his window-O,
And he heard a voice above the wild wind,
That was the Lord of the Forest-O.

And he plucked off both his Gucci shoes,
That he had bought in Harrods-O,
He went out into the street in his bare, bare feet,
All out in the wind and the weather-O.

And he laid aside his Armani suit
That he had worn to the hunt ball-O
And then he put on a jumper and some jeans
To follow the Lord of the Forest-O

And he ran out of his Windsor flat
And he ran through the town to the Great Park-O
Until he came to a grove of trees
Where stood the Lord of the Forests-O

“What makes you leave your houses five,
Your champagne lifestyle to forego,
What makes you leave your brand new silver Porsche,
To run with the Lord of the Forests-O?”

“O what care I for my houses five,
What care I for the champagne-O,
What care I for my brand new silver Porsche,
When I hear the Lord of the Forests-O?”

“Last night you slept in the Dorchester,
With a football star that the papers know,
But tonight you'll sleep with the deer in the woods,
if you stay with the Lord of the Forests-O.”

“Oh what care I for a hotel suite,
And what care I for the famous-O
, Tonight I shall sleep with my deer-antlered Lord,
in this windswept glade in the forest-O.”

And he settled down on his ferny bed
And the Lord of the Forests lay with him-O
And if you listen well when the winter wind doth blow
You’ll hear him call to you to come with him-O
