"WOLF WOLF"

There once was a boy living in the country,
Tending sheep on his father's farm.
He led them out to a hillside pasture,
Making sure they were safe from harm.

Then one day he was feeling lonely,
Sitting with the sheep all by him self.
He had an idea to pretend there was danger,
To say there's a wolf and call for help.

Chorus 1
"Wolf! Wolf!" he cried out to the villagers below.
"Wolf! Wolf!" but it really wasn't so.
"Wolf! Wolf!" he cried out, but it was only make believe.
Just to get attention, he decided to deceive

The men in town came quickly running
To help their neighbour in distress.
But when they arrived the boy sat laughing,
"There is no wolf! It was all in jest!"

The men went home, very disappointed
That the boy had lied to them.
A little while later up on the hillside,
The boy shouted out again and again:

Chorus 2
"Wolf! Wolf!" he cried out to the villagers below.
"Wolf! Wolf!" but it really wasn't so.
"Wolf! Wolf!" he cried out, but it was only make believe.
Just to get attention, he decided to deceive.

Bridge
One, two, three times the men came running,
Only to find the shepherd boy was lying.
But then one day a real wolf came along.
The boy cried, "Wolf! Wolf!" but no one would come.
Because he'd lied so many times before,
The people thought he was lying once more.
Then all the sheep started bleating for help.
He couldn't fight the wolf all by him self.
Oh-, so don't cry...

Chorus 3
"Wolf! Wolf!" if it really isn't true.
Don't cry, "Wolf!", you may be sorry if you do.
The little shepherd boy regretted he'd deceived,
'Cause when he really needed help,
No one would believe.

Chorus 4
Don't cry "Wolf!" if it really isn't true!
Don't cry "Wolf!", you may be sorry if you do.
The little shepherd boy regretted he'd deceived,
'Cause when he really needed help,
No one would believe.
'Cause when he really needed help,
No one would believe.
