Woodchuck Roll

Brace yourself! This is my latest Song Challenge entry for Carl Unbehaun’s Minnesota Homebrew Radio Show: Write a song about Groundhog’s Day, a Ground Hog or Woodchuck.

Nothing better than a true story about the varmint in the yard
He’d strut around like he owned the place and I was the blowhard
I grabbed myself a fishing net and ran down that steep hill
I cornered him about half way down and began to pounce at will

I got within a foot or two of declaring victory
But then he zigged, I should have zagged, the rest is history
I tumbled with the net held out, the dang thing got away
I rolled and rolled till painfully my plan just went astray

I did the Woodchuck Roll, I did the Woodchuck Roll
Stumble and rolling down the hill, I did the Woodchuck Roll

I finally stopped just tangled up in all those raspberries
I looked up and there he was staring down at me
I saw a twinkle in his eyes as if he won the game
I laid there quite a while with excruciating pain

OMG! Hilarious!!!!! True story? Just a pigment of your imagination maybe? Woodchuck hallucinations indicate a need for MORE WINE!
