Title: Ordinal Numbers Racing Blues
Singer/song writer: Jonathan Taylor Brittunculi


Well I placed a bet on a horse
and I hoped it would win
I was glued to the television
watching the racing

But it wasn’t 1st (first) or 2nd (second)
3rd (third) or 4th (fourth)
5th (fifth), 6th (sixth)
7th (seventh) of course
8th (eighth)
9th (ninth)
10th (tenth)
11th (eleventh)
12th (twelfth)
13th (thirteenth)
14th (fourteenth)
15th (fifteenth)

or 16th (sixteenth)
17th (seventeenth)
18th (eighteenth)
19th (nineteenth)
20th (twentieth)
21st (twenty-first)
22nd (twenty-second)
23rd (twenty-third)
24th (twenty-fourth)
25th (twenty-fifth)
26th (twenty-sixth)
27th (twenty-seventh)
28th (twenty-eighth)
29th (twenty-ninth)
30th (thirtieth)

Not even 31st (thirty-first)!
Nowhere to be seen

32nd (thirty-second)
33rd (thirty-third)
34th (thirty-fourth)
35th (thirty-fifth)
36th (thirty-sixth)
37th (thirty-seventh)
38th (thirty-eighth)
39th (thirty-ninth)
40th (fortieth)

Uh huh…
I’ll carry on counting

41st (forty-first)
42nd (forty-second)
43rd (forty-third)
44th (forty-fourth)
45th (forty-fifth)
46th (forty-sixth)
47th (forty-seventh)
48th (forty-eighth)
49th (forty-ninth)
50th (fiftieth)
Nowhere to be seen

60th (sixtieth)
70th (seventieth)
80th (eightieth)
90th (ninetieth)
100th (hundredth)
101st (hundred and first)

No, I came in last

What a donkey!
