Three Men Went a Huntin'

This song is by Byrd Moore And His Hot Shots and appears on the compilation Songs of Childhood (1978) and on the compilation American Roots: A History of American Folk Music (1999).

Three men went a-hunting, and something they did find
They came upon a porcupine, and that they left behind
The Irishman said, "It's a porcupine," the Scotsman, he said, "Nay"
The Welshman said, "It's a pincushion with the pins stuck in the wrong way"

Three men went a-hunting, and something they did find
They came upon a toad-frog, and that they left behind
The Irishman said, "It's a toad-frog," the Scotsman, he said, "Nay"
The Welshman said, "It's a jaybird with the feathers worn away"

Three men went a-hunting, and something they did find
They came upon an outhouse, and that they left behind
The Irishman said, "It's an outhouse," the Scotsman, he said, "Nay"
The Welshman said, "It's a church-house with the steeple blown away"

Three men went a-hunting, and something they did find
They came upon MBOTMA, and that they left behind
The Irishman said, "It's MBOTMA," the Scotsman, he said, "Nay"
The Welshman said, "It's the end of the world, let's go back the other way"
