    Hey from Downunder,

    I now live in Sydney, Australia. However, I was born and raised in Kentucky. My parents were pure country. I am trying to find the words of a little ditty that my parents would recite occasionally after a particularly fine meal where we all had over eaten. It began like this:

    Dad – “I’ve et sufficient.”
    Mom – “Say you went fishin’?”
    Dad – “No, I’ve had plenty”
    Mom – “Say you caught twenty?”
    Dad – “I can’t hold no more.”
    Mom – “Oh, you caught four!”

    There were more verses after this that I can’t remember.

    It ended with:

    Dad – “Poor ol’ soul.”
    Mom – “Say you broke your pole?”

    Of course, there was always much laughter the longer it went on. If anyone can help me with any additional verses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Ron Robinson

    Ron, you’ve captured the story in its essence already! Have a look at My Grandma the Storyteller, which shares not only this story but many just like it.
