Daffy's song is set to the tune of the 17th-century ballad "Come Lasses and Lads"; his lyrics are very loosely based on the first verse: Come, Lasses and Lads, get leave of your Dads, And away to the Maypole hie, For ev'ry fair has a sweetheart there And the fiddler's standing by. For Willy shall dance with Jane, And Johnny has got his Joan, To trip it, trip it, trip it, trip it Trip it up and down, To trip it, trip it, trip it, trip it Trip it up and down. See more
At one point Porky Pig (in the character of Friar Tuck) is walking in the forest singing the first verse of "The Ballad of Barbara Allen". Historians and Musicologists have dated the song only to 1666, not to Robin Hood's 12th Century. See more
Oh... Join up with me, so joyous and free / Away to old Sherwood hie / For I'm Robin Hood, and I'm very good / At avoiding the Sheriff's eye / So we'll trip along merrily / Thro' the green woods so gracefully / To trip it, trip it, trip it, trip it / trip it up and down / To trip it, trip it...
[trips down a hill
...trip it, trip it, trip it - Whoops! - trip it, trip it, trip it...
[falls into a pond
... so trip it up and down!
The opening titles appear on arrows shot at a target. As the final title card (Starring Daffy Duck) appears, the camera pulls back to reveal that Daffy has been shooting the arrows at point-blank range. He notices the camera and slinks away, shamefaced. See more
