The Ames Brothers – I Saw Esau lyrics

I saw Esau sitting on a see-saw
I saw Esau with my girl
I saw Esau sitting on a see-saw
Giving her a merry whirl
When I saw Esau, he saw me
And I saw red and got so sore
So I got a saw and I sawed Esau
Off that old see-saw

I was strolling in the park
I was as happy as a little lark
Then I got a big surprise
Right before my eyes

[Repeat chorus]

My girl started in to laugh when I
Sawed that see-saw right in half
Then I knew she was really mine
Ever since the time

[Repeat chorus]

I go strolling in the park
Always happy as a little lark
And from my girl, he stays away
Every since the day

[Repeat chorus]

Off that old see-saw
