Our Goodman
3   Whose boots is those boots where my boots ought to be ? It's nothing but a cabbage head my mother sent to me. A cabbage head with boot heels on I never saw before.
4  Whose hat is that hat where my hat ought to be ? It's nothing but a dish rag my mother sent to me. A dish rag with a hat band on I never saw before.
5   Whose pants are those pants where my pants ought to be ? It's nothing but a petticoat my mother sent to me.
A petticoat with a gallices (suspenders) on I never saw before.
6   Who's that in the bed where I ought to be ?
It's nothing but a baby child my mother sent to me.
A baby child with mushtash (moustachios) on I never saw before.
