Turkey In the Straw

As I was a-goin’ on down the road
With a tired team and a heavy load
I cracked my whip and the leader sprung
I says day-day to the wagon tongue
    Turkey in the straw, Turkey in the straw
    Roll ‘em up and twist ‘em up, a high tuck a-haw
    And hit ‘em up a tune called, 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
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?
