Ive gone in for farming, I like the life, mixed up with sows and rams So much time I share, with the animals there, Im beginning to baa like a lamb. The air is so fresh, you get quite a thrill, But some of the milkmaids are much fresher still. To be a farmers boy, down on the farm. can't come to harm down there. Early to bed makes you feel right as rain, Before Im asleep I just get up again Down at the village inn, the daughters so nice, my fresh eggs she does enjoy For two eggs she lets me give her kisses a few, For four eggs I can kiss her yes and cuddle her too. Tonight Im going to find out what a dozen will do Oh it's grand to be a farmers boy To be a farmers boy, down on the farm. can't come to harm down there. Weve got fourteen pigs, that's a lot you can tell, Fourteen, that's not counting the farmer as well! I get ten bob a week, and everything found, and what have I found oh boy! One day the farmer said, someone, my farm tried to rob Two prize sheep were stolen, twas a very bad job, Ive just sold two fine sheepskin rugs for twenty five bob Oh it's grand to be a farmers boy. To be a farmers boy, down on the farm, can't come to harm down there. I milk all the cows and I bob the sheeps wool, Then play hide and seek with a savage mad bull I met a country maid on marketing day, with her basket she looked so coy, She said she was a shepherdess they called her Bo-Peep, Shed lost her lambs, I said I'll help you find them don't weep I know that I found everything excepting her sheep Oh it's grand to be a farmers boy.
