Part of the Lumber Jack Song in Latin Hexameters, in choral responsion between the lumberjack and the elderly chorus of lumberjacks:
I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK,
I sleep all night and I work all day.
lautus ego quippe alta die mihi robora caedo;
nocte cadente Sopor lumina fessa operit!
I'm splendid because I cut the tall oak beams during day,
But when night falls, Sleep seals my tired eyes.
The elderly chorus of lumberjacks RESPOND:
pinea ligna focis domibusque trabes tibi curae;
solis luce labor; nocte gravi recubas.
pine-wood fags for hearths; wood beams for homes are your concern,
during sun's light there's work to do, when night is deep you recline in sleep.
