I Went to Town on Monday

I went to town on Monday 

To buy myself a coat, 

But on the way I met a man 

Who traveled with a caravan, 

And bought a billy-goat. 

I went to town on Tuesday 

And bought a fancy vest. 

I kept the pretty bucklestraps, 

Buttonholes and pocketflaps, 

And threw away the rest. 

I went to town on Thursday 

To buy a loaf of bread, 

But when I got there, goodness sakes! 

The town was full of rattlesnakes 

The bakers all were dead. 

I went to town on Saturday 

To get myself a wife, 

But when I saw the lady fair 

I gnashed my teeth and pulled my hair 

And scampered for my life.
