My Uncle Jed, he lives down on the farm
whatever he does, doesn't do nobody no harm
works all day sleeps all night
he never ever worries but he's soon to a fight

oh, ho, Uncle Jed say
isn't everybody gettin' older each day
oh, ho, who wants to fly
I only want to live until the day that I die

Now Jed build his house down over a stream
you know his floor was a window and his roof was a dream
he planted a tree down under his bed
he never paid attention to what other folks said

oh, ho, Uncle Jed say
isn't everybody gettin' older each day
oh, ho, who wants to fly
I only want to live until the day that I die

Now out in the barn Jed had his horse
he had his elephants and tiger and a zebra of course
ten kangaroos, a herd of giraffes,
a spotted alligator and a couch just full of lice

oh, ho, Uncle Jed say
isn't everybody gettin' older each day
oh, ho, who wants to fly
I only want to live until the day that I die

Amy Lou she's Uncle Jed's wife
she's so very pretty and she's always nice
Amy and Jed they make quite a pair
a couple of freaks from the old county fair

oh, ho, Uncle Jed say
isn't everybody gettin' older each day
oh, ho, who wants to fly
I only want to live until the day that I die

oh, ho, Uncle Jed say
isn't everybody gettin' older each day
oh, ho, who wants to fly
I only want to live until the day that I die

oh, ho, Uncle Jed say
isn't everybody gettin' older each day
oh, ho, who wants to fly
I only want to live until the day that I die
