Hail The National Bird

From all of us at The Daily Heller to all of you. Happy Bird Day.

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 To the wagon tongue

Turkey in the straw Turkey in the hay Turkey in the straw Turkey in the hay Roll ’em up and twist ’em up A high tuck a-haw And hit ’em up a 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 Turkey in the hay Turkey in the straw Turkey in the hay 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

Turkey in the straw Turkey in the hay Turkey in the straw Turkey in the hay Roll ’em up and twist ’em up A high tuck a-haw And hit ’em up a 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 Turkey in the hay Turkey in the straw Turkey in the hay Roll ’em up and twist ’em up A high tuck a-haw And hit ’em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw
