Turkey in the Hay

Turkey in the hay (hey, hey, hey)
Turkey in the straw (haw, haw, haw)
The bullfrog danced with his mother in law
Sing a little song called turkey in the straw.

Well I walked downtown and I walked around the block
And I walked right in to a doughnut shop
And I took two doughnuts right out of the grease
Handed the lady a five cent piece

Well, she looked at the nickel and she looked at me
And she said, “This nickel’s no good to me
There’s a hole in the middle and it goes right through!”
Says I, “There’s a hole in my doughnut, too!”


And I had a little chicken and she wouldn’t lay an egg
So I poured hot water up and down her leg
The little chicken moaned, the little chicken begged
The gosh darned chicken laid a hard boiled egg!
