As I walked the woods
I met a hanging man
He creaked his head and said to me
“Hello fellow, where are you going?”
But I passed the hanging man

As I walked the woods
I met a drowning woman
She raised her head and said to me
“Hello fellow, where are you going?”
But I passed the drowning woman

As I walked the woods
I met a burning boy
He bowed his head and said to me
“Hello fellow, where are you going?”
But I passed the burning boy

As I walked the woods
I met a bleeding girl
She turned her head and said to me
“Hello fellow, where are you going?”
But I passed the bleeding girl

As I walked the woods
I met a waving birch
It shaved its bark and said to me
“Hello fellow, where are you going?”
But I passed the waving birch

So if you see a man wandering in the woods,
Be kind and leave him be
Leave him be as if it were you
Or
Leave him be as if it were me
