DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Turkey in the Straw

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

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
In the wagon tongue

Turkey in the straw - ha ha ha
Turkey in the straw - ha ha ha
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up
A high tuck a-haw
And sing a little 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

Turkey in the straw - ha ha ha
Turkey in the straw - ha ha ha
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up
A high tuck a-haw
And sing a little 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

Turkey in the straw - ha ha ha
Turkey in the straw - ha ha ha
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up
A high tuck a-haw
And sing a little tune called
Turkey in the Straw

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?

Turkey in the straw - ha ha ha
Turkey in the straw - ha ha ha
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up
A high tuck a-haw
And sing a little tune called
Turkey in the Straw
