Now I'm A Farmer - The Who (誰人樂隊)

And a hundred miles square of land to churn about

 

My old horse is weary but sincerely

I believe that he can pull a plough

 

Well I've moved into the jungle of the agriculture rumble

 

To grow my own food

 

And I'll dig and plough and scrape the weeds

Till I succeed in seeing cabbage growing through

 

Now I'm a farmer and I'm digging digging digging digging digging

 

Now I'm a farmer and I'm digging digging digging digging digging

 

It's alarming how charming it is to be a-farming

 

How calming and balming the effect of the air

 

Well I farmed for a year and grew a crop of corn

That stretched as far as the eye can see

 

That's a whole lot of cornflakes

Near enough to feed New York till 1973

 

Cultivation is my station and the nation

Buys my corn from me immediately

 

And holding sixty thousand bucks I watch as dumper trucks

Tip New York's corn flakes in the sea

 

Now I'm a farmer and I'm digging digging digging digging digging

 

Now I'm a farmer and I'm digging digging digging digging digging

 

It's alarming how charming it is to be a-farming

 

How calming and balming the effect of the air

 

Now look here son

 

The right thing to say

 

Isn't necessarily what you want to say

 

The right thing to do

 

Isn't necessarily what you want to do

 

The right things to grow

 

Ain't necessarily what you want to grow

 

Your own happiness

 

Doesn't necessarily teach you what you want to know

 

Well I'm suntanned and deep so's the horse

 

And my hands are deeply grained

 

Old horse is a-grazing it's amazing

 

Just how lazily he took the strain

 

Well my pick and spade are rusty

Because I'm paid on trust to leave my square of cornfield bare

 

It's alarming how charming it is to be a-farming

 

How calming and balming the effect of the air

 

When you grow what I grow

 

Tomatoes potatoes stew eggplants

 

Potatoes tomatoes gourds
