I BOUGHT ME A WIFE
I bought me a wife the tenth of June, Nickety nackety, now, now, now,
I brought her home by the light of the moon. High, willy, wally, and Jenny bang, Doodle, sandy go restego, now, now, now.
I bought two cows, they both were good, I told her to milk whichever she would.
For want of a churn she used the old man's boot, For want of a dasher she used his foot.
