Derby Ram (3) They brought the beast to Der-by-town, And drove him with a stick, And all the girls in Der-by-town Paid a quar-ter to see his cho: Maybe you don't believe me, Maybe you think it's a lie, [But] if you'd been down to Derbytown You'd seen the same as I. The legs upon this monster, They grew so far apart, That all the girls in Derbytown Could hear him when he The hair upon this monster, It grew so very thick, That none of the girls in Derbytown Could see the head of his The horns upon this monster, They grew up solid brass. One grew out of his forehead And the other grew out of his And when this beast got hungry, They mostly fed him grass. They did not put it in his mouth; But shoved it up his He did not care for grass so much; He always wanted duck. But every time he ate a bird, He had to take a The garbage bill was awful, And it cost us quite a bit, But we had to keep a special truck To haul away the There's something else I'd like to say, Now what do you think of this? The folks would come from miles around Just to watch him take a The girls that live in Derbytown Will all sit in your lap. One night a girlie sat on mine And now I've got the DT #312 RG
