Contrary to popular belief, he was never a member of the Democratic Party



Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men
Feared by the bad, loved by the good
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, Robin Hood

He called the greatest archers to a tavern on the green
They vowed to help the people of the king
They handled all the troubles on the English country scene
And still found plenty of time to sing

He came to Sherwood Forest with a feather in his cap
A fighter never looking for a fight
His bow was always ready, and he kept his arrows sharp.
He used them to fight for what was right.

With Friar Tuck and Little John they had a roguish look,
They did the deed the others wouldn’t dare.
He captured all the money that the evil sheriff took,
And rescued many a lady fair.
