Here's a bit of news that's quite a shocker
Proving mother nature still has charm
Quoting Mr. Charley Knickerbocker
Get in the swim and buy a barn
Acres of alfalfa, fields of clover
Suddenly enchant our top who's who
So, the moment all this rowel is over
What say that we go hay seed to
For farming, that's the fashion
Farming, that's the fashion of our great celebrities of today
Kit Cornell is shelling peas
Lady Mendl's climbing trees
Dear May West is at her best in the hay
Singin' while they're raking
Bringin' home the bacon
Makes them feel more glamorous and more gay
They tell me cows when they're feelin' milky
All give cream when they're milked by Willkie
Oh farming, it's so charming they all say
Oh farming, that's the fashion
Farming, that's the fashion of the great celebrities of today
Yeah yeah
Five o'clock the cock is crowing
Though the frost is on the pumpkin
Back to sleep you can't be going
If you want to be a bumpkin
It's so chic for Look or Peek
To take your picture with a guernsey
In the wilds of old Connecticut
Or possibly New Jersey
Mussin up the clover
Cussin' when it's over
Makes them feel more glamorous and more gay today
Hart and Kaulfman in Bucks County
Pulled a farm and killed a diller
When they planted in their corn fields
All their clippings from Drew Miller
Farming, it's so charming, they all say
Farming, that's the fashion
Farming, that's the passion of our great celebrities of today
Bernard Shaw doing turkey in the straw
Don't enquire of Georgie Raft
Why, his cow has never calfed
Georgey's bull is beautiful but he's gay
Mussin' up the clover
Cussin' when it's over
Makes them feel informal and degage
The natives think it's utterly utter
When Margie Hart starts churning her butter
Farming is so charming they all say
