It comes from the old television series "The Adventures of Robin Hood: The Legend". It was starring Richard Green, Bernadette O'Farrell aand Alexander Gauge. That verse was the theme song. It's available on video.

The verse is in my sub-conscious - and I can almost hear the words - but not quite! Maybe it'll come to me - if it does I'll repost.

I got the lyrics for you. The verse is a different tune than the chorus. Here goes:

CHORUS: Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men;
Feared by the bad, loved by the good,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, Robin Hood.

He calls the greatest archers to a tavern on the green,
They vow to help the people of the King.
They handle all the trouble on the English country scene
And still found plenty of time to sing.

CHORUS:

ROBIN HOOD THEME SONG

"Robin Hood, Robin Hood,
riding through the glen,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men.
Feared by the bad,
loved by the good,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood,
Robin Hood.

He called the greatest archers
To a tavern on the green.
They vowed to help the people of the King.
They handled all the trouble
on the English country scene
and still found plenty of time to sing..."

"Robin Hood, Robin Hood,
riding through the glen,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men.
Feared by the bad,
loved by the good,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood,
Robin Hood.

"Robin Hood, Robin Hood,
riding through the glen,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men.
Feared by the bad,
loved by the good,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood,
Robin Hood.

he came to sherwood forest
with a feather in his cap
a fighter always looking for a fight
his bow was always ready
and his arrows ever sharp
he used them to fight for what was right

"Robin Hood, Robin Hood,
riding through the glen,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men.
Feared by the bad,
loved by the good,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood,
Robin Hood.

I still sing it unconsciously, but sometimes, it comes out:

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, f***ing sheep and men....

Maybe I am a sicko, like they say, after all.

Peter.

Then there's

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the grass
Little John, Little John, shot him in the @ss
Thought he was a deer
Shot him in the rear
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, Robin Hood

I can't help but think of Monty Pythons answer to Robin Hood and the theme song.

Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Galloping through the sward
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
And his horse Concorde
He steals from the rich
And gives to the poor
Mr Moore, Mr Moore, Mr Moore

Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Riding through the night
Soon every lupin in the land
Will be in his mighty hand
He steals them from the rich
And gives them to the poor
Mr Moore, Mr Moore, Mr Moore

Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Dum dum dum the night
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Dum de dum dum plight
He steals dum dum dum
And dum dum dum dee
Dennis dum, Dennis dee dum dum dum

Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Riding through the woods
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
With his bag of things
He gives to the poor
And takes from the rich
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore

Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Riding through the land
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Without a merry band
He steals from the poor
And gives to the rich
Stupid Bitch

What a shame that, with all the traditional ballads that there are about Robin Hood, this is the only such song everyone (in the UK at least) seems to remember.

A flip through Child or Percy would come up with a couple of dozen better examples of RH stories.

Never mind, at least it's not "Whatever I Do (I do it for you)" that's being asked for (yet).

Oh, and by the way "Christmas is cancelled!"

Robin Hood
In the nude
Riding through the glen
Friar Tuck
Ran like f**k
And told the Merry Men

A childhood parody, but hey! That makes it folk!

Isn't this, in a way, what defines a "folk song?" The fact that it's lurking in the back of everyone's mind, and parodies pop out all over? Even though it was obviously written as a straight commercial proposition?

Here's a poem from the preface of an old version of the Robin Hood Legend I once found:

"Robin . . . Robin . . . Robin . . ." His merry band of thieves Echo as the bugle note Shivers through the trees, Calling as they used to call, Faint and far away, In the heart of Sherwood, At the break of day."

Good luck.
