Ballads and Songs
5.  The second night when I came home As drunk as I could be,
I found a horse in the stable Where my horse ought to be.
6. "You come here, my little wifle, And explain this thing to me: How come a horse in the stable Where my horse ought to be ?"
7. "You blind fool, you crazy fool, Can't you never see ?
It's nothing but a milk cow Your granny sent to me."
8. "I've traveled this world over A thousand miles or more; But a saddle on a milk cow
I never did see before."
9.  The third night when I came home As drunk as I could be,
I found a head lying on the pillow Where my head ought to be.
10. "You come here, my little wifie, And explain this thing to me:
How come a head lying on the pillow Where my head ought to be ?"
11.  "You blind fool, you crazy fool, Can't you never see?
It's nothing but a cabbage head Your granny sent to me."
12. "I've traveled this world over A thousand miles or more;
But a mustache on a cabbage head I never did see before."
