Lyrics

North America was a great big land
With a great big job to be done
A job that needed a great big man
Paul Bunyan was the one

Hey Paul! (Hey Paul!)
Paul Bunyan! (Paul Bunyan!)
He's 63 ax handles high
With his feet on the ground
And his head in the sky

Hey Paul! (Hey Paul!)
Paul Bunyan! (Paul Bunyan, Paul Bunyan, Paul Bunyan)

Choir: Good night (Sleep tight)
Paul Bunyan (Paul Bunyan)
You're only 10 ax handles high
But you'll get bigger by and by

Good night
Paul Bunyan (Paul Bunyan)

Kids: The boys would head for the swimming hole
Just as soon as the studies had ceased
Though young Paul was sometimes last
He surely never was least

Hey Paul!
Paul Bunyan!

Though he loved to swim, what a time he had
What a problem, me oh my
When his front was in the water hole
His back was high and dry

Hey Paul! (Hey Paul!)
Paul Bunyan! (Paul Bunyan!)

Paul: With my double blade ax and my hobnail boots
I go where the timber's tall
When there's work to be done, don't mess around
Just sing right out for Paul

Lumberjacks: Hey Paul!

Paul: (spoken) I'm comin', boys!

Lumberjacks: Paul Bunyan! (Paul Bunyan!)
He's 63 ax handles high
With his feet on the ground
And his head in the sky

Hey Paul! (Hey Paul!)
Paul Bunyan! (Paul Bunyan!)

Well, he picked up his ax and he chopped a tree
Clean down with his forward swing
Got him another with his ax on back
That timber cuttin' king

He kept on a-choppin' 'til the live-long day
And then when it was night
He walked back over the stumps he cut
And stomped them out of sight

Thanks Paul!

Paul: T'weren't nothin'!

Lumberjacks: Paul Bunyan! (Paul Bunyan!)

Lumberjacks: Well, Paul and Babe, they heaved and hoed
And the job was quickly done
They pulled that crocked river out
As straight as the barrel of a gun

Hey Paul!

Paul: (spoken) They're on their way!

Lumberjacks: Paul Bunyan! (Paul Bunyan!)
He's 63 ax handles high
With his feet on the ground
And his head in the sky

Hey Paul! (Hey Paul!)
Paul Bunyan! (Paul Bunyan! Paul Bunyan! Paul Bunyan!)

Lumberjacks: Hey Paul!

Lumberjack #1: (spoken) Keep swingin', Paul!

Lumberjacks: Paul Bunyan! (Yeah, Paul!)
Cut that timber, show 'em how
Beat that city slicker now

Hey Paul!

Lumberjack #1: (spoken) Get 'im, Paul!

Lumberjacks: Paul Bunyan! (Yeah, Paul!)

Poor Paul
Poor Paul Bunyan

Hey Paul! (Hey Paul!)
Paul Bunyan! (Paul Bunyan!)
He's 63 ax handles high
With his feet on the ground
And his head in the sky

Hey Paul! (Hey Paul!)
Paul Bunyan! (Paul Bunyan! Paul Bunyan! Paul Bunyan!)
