about

This is the Yiddish version of an old-time tune called Drunken Fool. The first verse is just about identical:

Well the first night that I came home so drunk I could not see,
Found a horse in the stable where my horse ought to be.
"Come here, my little wifey. Explain this thing to me.
How come a horse in the stable where my horse ought to be?"
"You blind fool, you drunken fool, can't you never see?
It's only a milk cow your granny sent to me."
I've traveled this world over, ten thousand miles or more,
But a saddle on a milk cow's back I never did see before.

lyrics
