I'm way up in the wilderness,
Way up, way up.
I'm going to catch some feathered thing,
Way up, way up.
Let him go to hear him sing,
Hear his true love answering,
Way up, way up.
Hear me whistle, hear me sigh,
Way up, way up.
Who will miss me when I die?
Way up, way up.
I'm way up in the wilderness,
Way up, way up.
