Summary - The fairies removed one man's hump and put it on another humpbacked man.

A man went to get something for the New Year. He saw a fairy knoll open and went inside. The fairies were dancing and singing, "Monday, Tuesday, Monday, Tuesday..." The man added 'Wednesday'. They liked this. The man had a hump on his back and they removed it.

He met another humpbacked man and told him what had happened to him. The other man went into the knoll and he sang, "Thursday, Friday." He'd spoiled the tune and the fairies gave him the other man's hump on top of his own.
