Ive gone in for farming, I like the life, mixed up with sows and rams
The air is so fresh, you get quite a thrill,
To be a farmers boy, down on the farm. can't come to harm down there.
Before Im asleep I just get up again
For two eggs she lets me give her kisses a few,
Tonight Im going to find out what a dozen will do
To be a farmers boy, down on the farm. can't come to harm down there.
Fourteen, that's not counting the farmer as well!
One day the farmer said, someone, my farm tried to rob
Ive just sold two fine sheepskin rugs for twenty five bob
To be a farmers boy, down on the farm, can't come to harm down there.
Then play hide and seek with a savage mad bull
She said she was a shepherdess they called her Bo-Peep,
I know that I found everything excepting her sheep
