We've got a farm, a barn of a farm
Right in the middle of a swamp
There ain't any charm in our little farm
Right in the middle of the swamp

Now nothing's grown since the day we came
Misery Farm is our farm's name!

We're all miserable, so miserable
Down on Misery Farm
So are the animals, so are the vegetables
Down on Misery Farm

The hens won't lay, we can't make hay
We work all day, we get no pay!
We're all miserable, so miserable
Down on Misery Farm

Now we've got a cart, with part of the cart
Stuck in the middle of the swamp
The old grey mare, she looks at it there
Stuck in the middle of the swamp

We'll be digging it out next May
Patching it up for Darby day!

We're miserable, so miserable
Down on Misery Farm
So are the animals, so are the vegetables
Down on Misery Farm

The hens won't lay, We can't make hay
We work all day and we get no pay!
We're miserable, so miserable
Down on Misery Farm

We're miserable, so miserable
Down on Misery Farm
So are the animals, so are the vegetables
Down on Misery Farm

The hens won't lay, we can't make hay
We work all day, we get no pay!
We're miserable, so miserable
Down on Misery Farm
