    Well, I had an old hen and she had a wooden leg,
    Just the best old hen that ever laid and egg,
    She laid more eggs than any hen on the farm,
    But another little drink wouldn't do her any harm.

    Turkey in the hay, in the hay, hay, hay!
    Turkey in the straw, in the straw, straw, straw!
    Pick 'em up, shake 'em up, any way at all,
    And hit up a tune called 'Turkey in the Straw'.

    Well, I hitched up the wagon and I drove down the road,
    With a two horse wagon and a four horse load,
    Well I cracked my whip and the lead horse sprung,
    And I said "Goodbye" to the wagon tongue.


    Well, if frogs had wings and snakes had hair,
    And automobiles went flyin' thro' the air,
    Well, if watermelons grew on a huckleberry vine,
    We'd still have winter in the summer time.


    Oh, I went out to milk and I didn't know how,
    I milked an old goat instead of a cow,
    A monkey sittin' there on a pile of straw,
    A-winkin' his eyes at his mother-in-law.


    Well, I come to the river and I couldn't get across,
    So I paid five dollars for an old blind horse,
    Well, he wouldn't go ahead and he wouldn't stand still,
    So he went up and down like an old saw mill.
