When I First Came To This Land


When I first came to this land,
I was not a wealthy man.
So I got myself a shack,
I did what I could.
And I called my shack, "Break my
back".
Oh, the land was sweet and good,
I did what I could.
When I first came to this land,
I was not a wealthy man,
So I got myself a cow,
I did what I could.
And I called my cow, "No milk now"
And I called my shack, "Break my
back".
Oh, the land was sweet and good,
I did what I could.
,,,,.So I got myself a hen,,.
And I called my hen, "Now and then"
,,,,.So I got myself a donkey,,.
And I called my donkey, "Horse gone
wonkey!"
,,,,.So I got myself a wife,,.
And I called my wife, "Trouble and
strife".
,,,,.So I got myself a son,,.
And I called my son, "My work done".
