Bust A Goose

De time o' de year is late September
Wit de worst conditions dat I remember -
It's cold and rainy; oh de weather is harsh,
But I'm goin' goose huntin' in de Horicon Marsh.
Two day vacation - great location,
Geese are flyin' south on de winter migration.
I'll stay all day - Cripe, I hope I have luck,
So I can bag a big overgrown Canadian duck.
Fer goose detection, I found a good section
Where I can see de marsh from every direction.
I'm huddled in a blind sittin' on a stump,
With a thermos full of coffee and a 10-guage pump.
In de sky I'm starin', goose call's blarin' 
Camouflage clothes is what I'm wearin'.
If I see one comin' I'm a turn it loose,
I'll take aim at the game and bust a goose!
 
Just bust a goose
It won't stop rainin', I keep complainin',
I can't see much and my eyes are strainin'.
If I see one flyin' by God I swear,
I'm a shoot that goose right outta de air.
Decoys baitin' and I'm still waitin',
Der ain't no geese, an' it's gettin' frustratin'
As I thought to myself - were they comin' at all?
I blew three quick blasts on my wooden goose call.
Rain still pourin', it was gettin' borin',
Then I thought I caught a sight of somethin' soarin'
A big flock o' geese I could barely see,
And they were comin' straight in shaped like a "V".
I got myself ready, held my gun steady,
A couple seconds more!  Oh, my hands are gettin' sweaty!
I should wait a little longer, but what's de use?
I put a finger on de trigger and bust a goose!
Well you shot it - You got it!
You hit it - so go get it!
Just Bust a Goose!
Well you shot it - You got it!
You hit it - so go get it!
Here they come, guy!.
It's a great big flock an' der honkin' an' squawkin',
I grab de 10-guage and I'm loadin' and cockin'.
My sights are on de leader an' he's comin' in fast,
My breath held, I let go of a 10-guage blast!
Bird shot's flyin', but dey ain't dyin',
I keep on missin' guy, so I keep trying.
Then I got lucky and it finally occurred,
And down to de ground fell a big ol' bird.
Satisfaction was my reaction,
I was so excited dat I wanted more action.
There were so many geese I was goin' in shock,
If it wouldn't a been illegal, I'd a shot de whole flock.
After 27 round der sprawled out on de ground,
Was a big fat honker weighin' 24 pound.
Put a tag 'round his neck tight like a noose,
And dat's what happened when I bust a goose!
Well you shot it - You got it!
You hit it - so go get it!
Just Bust a Goose!
Well you shot it - You got it!
You hit it - so go get it!
Goose-huntin' guy!
