Campfire Song Index

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

Chorus:
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

Repeat Chorus

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?

Repeat Chorus
