Chinese French

Turkey in the Straw

Went out to milk and I didn’t know how
I milked the goat instead of the cow
A monkey sittin’ on a pile of straw
A-winkin’ at his mother-in-law

Turkey in the straw (ha-ha-ha)
Turkey in the straw (he-he-he)
Roll ‘em up and twist ‘em up
A high tuck a-haw
And hit ‘em up a tune called
Turkey in the Straw

I came to the river and I couldn’t get across
So I paid five dollars for a big bay hoss
Well, he wouldn’t go ahead and he wouldn’t stand still
So he went up and down like an old saw mill


Did you ever go fishin’ on a warm summer day
When all the fish were swimmin’ in the bay
With their hands in their pockets and their pockets in their pants
Did you ever see a fishie do the Hootchy-Kootchy dance?
