W:Oh, as I came home on Monday night as drunk as drunk could be,
W:I saw a horse outside the door where my old horse should be.
W:Well, I called my wife and I said to her: "Will you kindly tell to me,
W:who owns that horse outside the door where my old horse should be?"
W:"Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool, still you cannot see,
W:that's a lovely sow that my mother sent to me."
W:Well, it's many a day I travelled, a hundred miles or more,
W:but a saddle on a sow sure I never saw before.
W:
W:And as I came home on Tuesday night as drunk as drunk could be,

W:who owns that coat behind the door where my old coat should be?"
W:"Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool, still you cannot see,
W:that's a woollen blanket that my mother sent to me."
W:Well, it's many a day I travelled, a hundred miles or more,
W:but buttons in a blanket sure I never saw before.

W:who owns that pipe upon the chair where my old pipe should be?"
W:"Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool, still you cannot see,
W:that's a lovely tin whistle that my mother sent to me."
W:Well, it's many a day I travelled, a hundred miles or more,
W:but tobacco in a tin whistle sure I never saw before.
W:
W:And as I came home on Thursday night as drunk as drunk could be,
W:I saw two boots beneath the bed where my old boots should be.
W:Well, I called my wife and I said to her: "Will you kindly tell to me,
W:who owns them boots beneath the bed where my old boots should be?"
W:"Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool, still you cannot see,
W:they're two lovely geranium pots my mother sent to me."
W:Well, it's many a day I travelled, a hundred miles or more,
W:but laces in geranium pots sure I never saw before.
W:
W:And as I came home on Friday night as drunk as drunk could be,
W:I saw a head upon the bed where my old head should be.
W:Well, I called my wife and I said to her: "Will you kindly tell to me,
W:who owns that head upon the bed where my old head should be?"
W:"Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool, still you cannot see,
W:that's a baby boy that my mother sent to me."

W:who owns that thing in your right hand where my old thing should be?"
W:"Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool, still you cannot see,
W:that's a home grown carrot that my mother sent to me."
W:Well, it's many a day I travelled, a hundred miles or more,
W:but hair on a carrot sure I never saw before.
W:
W:And as I came home on Sunday night as drunk as drunk could be,
W:I saw a man who left the house, and it was after three!
W:So I called my wife, and I said to her: "Will you kindly tell to me,
W:who was that man who left the house, and it was after three?"
W:"Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool, still you cannot see,
W:That's a tax collector who was sent to service me."
W:Well, it's many a day I travelled, a hundred miles or more,
