Well now Master Little John, I have to say it's so,
That if you fight ought like you talk, you'd be a mighty foe,
But no man who calls me coward lives to fight another day,
So I'd best cut me a quarter staff and the we'll make affray
With our Whack fol da do fol da diddly dum a day!

John

Lay on then, bold Sir Traveller, but when the battle's done,
You'll know that I'm the better man, for I'll have surely won,
And when your head is bleeding and your body stiff and sore,
You'll be sitting in the water a dozen yards from shore
With your Whack fol da do fol da diddly dum a day!

Fight Scene.. Ending with R dumped in the stream (Please manage real water!)

Robin (damply)

Well now Bold Sir Little John, you're better than your word,
I'd back you with your quarter-staff against most any sword.
Know that my name is Robin Hood, I'm outlawed in this land,
Now come away to Sherwood and join my rebel band
With your Whack fol da do fol da diddly dum a day!

Can probably be improved on, but I expect you get the idea. Sorry I am at the other side of the world, I would like to see the show!

For the record, I enjoyed doing that, I don't do serious very often.
Feel free to use any or all of the above, sorry I dont do Chords and stuff like that, but there is bound to be someone around who knows the tune, The Clancy Bros used to do it.
Break a leg!
