"The Keeper" used to be very popular in England and I don't know when I first sang it - most probably at school. I don't even know where I got the version I sing today but the lyrics are, word-for-word, the ones to be found in
One Hundred English Folksongs
by Cecil J. Sharpe.
The song is about a gamekeeper's hunting efforts in shooting at six doe and the outcome of each attempt. The chorus is very interesting as it is split into two parts for two groups of singers. It's great fun to sing.
