The Lyrics

When will I ever learn, when will I ever learn?
I bought a grist mill for my homestead
And I crank it by hand
Searching for a way to get closer to the land
I chop some wood to build a fire
I'm fermenting my own wine
Trying to be self-sufficient
I'm doing just fine

I know I need a generator
Some way to catch the rain
And if it snows the cabin roof
Will never stand the strain
I buy all my food in bulk now
I have bags of corn to grind
Trying to be self-sufficient
I'm still doing fine

Buy directly from the farmers
Churn some butter at the fair
Hey, I'm grinding my corn now
Does anybody care?

(Musical Interlude)

Got a flock of pure bred chickens
Show them at the county fair
Jimmy's grinding some corn now
Does anybody care?
If Jimmy cracked corn, and no one cares, why do we keep singing about it?

With all these Jimmy Webb parodies that you're doing Patrick, I thought it best to at least comment on one of them, if not others, Great job! 555! :-)

Jimmy lacked porn, but he don't care
He's mastered his domain
