goat does not know the worth of the hunter,
the charms in his bag?
fight with the imp?
the torch on his forehead?
number of days spent in the forest?
talking about the camp he resides?
deep, the journey in the forest.
hunter comes back home, we give thanks,
hunter kills a game, all glory to God,
hunter does not sustain wounds, let’s rejoice,
hunter comes with a small animal, let’s dance,
are lots of hunters in the forest, yet to kill a game!
hunter is doing a great job,
the gun constantly on his shoulders,
to God before heading for the forest,
torch on his forehead,
incantation he recites,
imp that he fits with,
don’t care attitude to cold,
hunter does valiantly.
hunter is always valiant,
hunter is courageous,
goat should not trespass,
others are seeking for the hunter!
are seeking for his attention!
want to show him his worth,
take care of your hunter,
the world might know,
goat now knows the worth of the hunter.
