well, i coulda sworn... that i heard it go quack
so i closed in...and i snuck around its back
i furtively eyed and furtively attacked
i shot me a duck decoy
there was no sign of life...but i hadn't done no harm
it didn't fly off angrily...or swim off in alarm
i merely picked it up...and i tucked it 'neath my arm
i shot me a duck decoy

well, its such a nice find...i sought one all winter
beady eyes lookin' up...with a hole in the center
i'd bite but nothing would i get except a splinter
i shot me a duck decoy

well, i hunt for fun...not to feed myself, although...
i'd be eatin' little...if i had to, doncha know
when there's critters a-creep...you can bet that i will show
i shot me a duck decoy
i'd be out there huntin'...all day if i could
my aim is precise...though my vision ain't too good
pull the trigger all i can...like a shootin' man should
i shot me a duck decoy

well, its such a nice find...i sought one all winter
beady eyes lookin' up...with a hole in the center
i'd bite but nothing would i get except a splinter
i shot me a duck decoy

well, i wouldn't trade my catch...cause i think its real cool
a live one wouldn't last...don't ya take me for a fool
this one is so pretty...its as precious as a jewel
i shot me a duck decoy
got a nice paint job...its the best i've ever seen
the poor 'ol boy who lost it...musta thought that it was keen
and if he knew i had it....man, i think he'd get mean
i shot me a duck decoy

well, its such a nice find...i sought one all winter
beady eyes lookin' up...with a hole in the center
i'd bite but nothing would i get except a splinter
i shot me a duck decoy

its never been real...so this fella never died
don't want it to get weathered...so i keep it safe inside
it sits upon my mantle....and it fills me up with pride
i shot me a duck decoy
musta been a fine man...who sat down and got it whittled
its yellow and green...with a stripe right down the middle
i only fired once...so it isn't bullet riddled
i shot me a duck decoy

well, its such a nice find...i sought one all winter
beady eyes lookin' up...with a hole in the center
i'd bite but nothing would i get except a splinter
i shot me a duck decoy
YEAH !
