A Farmer's Boy-1936
  Regal Zonophone MR2033 Gifford/Cliffe

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. Cant 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 its grand to be a farmers boy 

To be a farmers boy, down on the farm. Cant come to harm down there.
Weve got fourteen pigs, thats a lot you can tell,
Fourteen, thats 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 its grand to be a farmers boy. 

To be a farmers boy, down on the farm, cant 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 Ill help you find them dont weep
I know that I found everything excepting her sheep
Oh its grand to be a farmers boy.
