Upon the Road to Rockabout

Upon the road to Rockabout
I came upon some sheep —
A large and woolly flock about
As wide as it was deep.

I was about to turn about
To ask the man to tell
Some things I wished to learn about
Both sheep and wool as well,

When I beheld a rouseabout
Who lay upon his back
Beside a little house about
A furlong from the track.

I had a lot to talk about,
And said to him “Good day.”
But he got up to walk about,
And so I went away.
