This song has been in our family for a long time, it comes at least rom my grandmother who was born in Huron County Ontario in
1879. My version as I remember it is something like this:

A horse and a sheep went out to pasture
Sing song city won't you ki-me-oh
Said the horse to the sheep, can't you go a little faster
Sing song city won't you ki-me-oh
Keemo Karmo darowah
Mic-eye mic-oh
Mic rump sack pumpernickel
Shut back penny whistle
Nim-cat nim-coe
Sing song city won't you ki-me-oh
When the chicks have nearly grown
Sing a song a city won't you kie-me-oh
