Our version from camp sounds sort of like it:
Bill Grogan's goat wasn't feeling fine
Ate 3 red shirts right off the line
Bill took a stick, gave him a whack,
And tied him to the railroad track.
The whistle blew, the train grew nigh.
Bill Grogan's goat was doomed to die.
He gave three groans, three groans of pain
Coughed up the shirts and flagged the train!
