Turkey in the Straw" is a well-known American folk song dating from the early 19th century. The first part of the song's tune may be derived from the ballad "My Grandmother Lived on Yonder Little Green" which was a derivative of the Irish ballad "The Old Rose Tree. Originally a tune for fiddle players, it was first popularised in minstrel shows during the late 1820s and early 1830s by blackface performers, notably George Washington Dixon and Bob Farrell.

CHORUS Turkey in the hay, in the hay, hay, hay! Turkey in the straw, in the straw, straw, straw! Pick 'em up, shake 'em up, any way at all, And hit up a tune called 'Turkey in the Straw'. Well, I hitched up the wagon and I drove down the road, With a two horse wagon and a four horse load, Well I cracked my whip and the lead horse sprung, And I said "Goodbye" to the wagon tongue. CHORUS Oh, I went out to milk and I didn't know how, I milked an old goat instead of a cow, A monkey sittin' there on a pile of straw, A-winkin' his eyes at his mother-in-law. CHORUS Well, I come to the river and I couldn't get across, So I paid five dollars for an old blind horse, Well, he wouldn't go ahead and he wouldn't stand still, So he went up and down like an old saw mill.
