Ordinal Numbers Racing Blues

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

Lyrics

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 33rd (thirty-third)!
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
152nd (hundred and fifty-second)
What a donkey!
