Lyrics
A Farm Kid's Life

Well, I'm up at dawn,
Got my workin' clothes on.
Can't just sleep the summer away.
Gotta milk the cows,
Gotta feed the sows.
There's a lot of work to do today.
Gotta move some pipe,
And the cherries are ripe.
Gotta get 'em picked before ten.
Now the sheep are out,
'Though I'm feelin' wore out,
Gotta get 'em back inside the pen.

Life on the farm for a kid
Sure isn't simple or easy!
But, life on the farm for a kid
Beats the thought of city life for me!

Well, it's time for lunch,
And I've got a hunch,
Daddy's gonna be late again.
So I'm out the door,
Do a couple more chores:
Gather eggs and feed the laying hens.
When it's half past one,
All the dishes are done.
Mama's home from shoppin' in town.
'Though I'd like to play,
Put the groceries away,
Then I plant tomatoes in the ground.

Life on the farm for a kid
Sure isn't simple or easy!
But, life on the farm for a kid
Beats the thought of city life for me!

It's another day,
Gotta bale some hay,
So I'm up and working by four.
I work on through dawn
'Til the dew is gone, 
Then I stop and do my morning chores.
When the sun has set
And it's time for bed,
We'll be sure to sleep well, and then
When the night is gone,
At the break of dawn,
We'll get up and do it all again.

Life on the farm for a kid
Sure isn't simple or easy!
But, life on the farm for a kid
Beats the thought of city life for me!

Life on the farm for a kid
Sure isn't simple or easy!
But, life on the farm for a kid
Beats the thought of city life for me!
Beats the thought of city life for me!
Beats the thought of city life for me!
