"It's so Peaceful in the Country" as written by and Alec Wilder....
It’s so peaceful in the country
It’s so simple and quiet
You really ought to try it
You walk about and talk about
The pleasant things in life
It’s so restful in the country
It’s the right kind of diet
You really ought to try it
You lie and dream
Beside a stream
Where daisies nod hello
City living is a pretty living
It’s so full of unexpected thrills
But there’s too much stone
Too much telephone
There’s too much of everything but trees and hills
It’s so peaceful in the country
It’s so simple and quite
Someday you’re bound to try it
The only place to be
Is a place for you and me
Where it’s peaceful in the country
The skyline of New York is a splendid sight
I know Chicago’s loop is magical at night
The natives of Cleveland from Frisco and Boston
And natives of cities a stranger gets lost in
All of them claim that their city’s the best
From deep in the south and from out in the west
Perhaps it’s all true but from my point of view
It’s so peaceful in the country
It’s so simple and quiet
Someday you’re bound to try it
The only place to be
Is a place for you and me
Where it’s peaceful in the country
