The Lyrics

Yes, yes, it was originally by David Allen Coe. Paycheck version on YouTube

Take this cob and shuck it
It’s a quirky thing of corn
When husks are bereft it looks all a-pleasin’
Side bits off, are torn
My better’s got roadside stand an’ she say:
“Start unflocking all that corn”
Take this cob and shuck it
With a thumb and finger, fore

I’m not shirking of this shockery
I ply in autumn haze
Passing time has got my home sur-
rounded by mound of maize
Now I've seen a glut of niblets plied
I’ve handled lots of silk today
I'll get the kernels into that sack
It’s a mad rad shuck soiree!

Take this cob and shuck it
It’s a dirty, dusty chore
My woman done left
me this job, I’m sneezin’
(Histamines galore)
Intendin’ that I do confront her and say
(But such talk would kill rapport)
Take this cob and shove it
Ire I’ll shirk, and shuck some more

Well I bare cobs for the piggies and hogs
And fine bossies, I do
Got demand from chook-coop pullets
And from ducks and goose
Render these ears unrobed’s my lot
I’m a shucker - I’m goin’ all day
Boredom’s my fate: divest these sheathings
The right, I reserve, to say:

Take this cob and shuck it
Overworked - I’ve bleedin’ pores
Presume that I’ll deft-
-ly strip all the tassels
I’m berserkly bored!
On job, I might die - I’m fadin’ away
Will to live, well, it’s no more...
Take this cob and shuck it
With a thumb and finger, fore

Take this cob and shove it!

Been a while since I've shucked any corn. I can picture you struggling at this boring job. Reckon I'd say something stronger than "shucks" if it were me.

Hope you didn't get Carpal Tunnel ....but it would be a small price to pay...to be "OUTSTANDING" in your [corny] fields < SALUTE

Patrick: I don't even like to open one at the supermarket to check out the ear.

John: It seemed like such an obvious one I was surprised no one had thought of it before.

OMR: Thanks - we're good at corny heh heh

Pop: Stick with M&P, we've farm parodies galore!

AFW: Good humor - that would be cornsickles, right?

Dave: Only get carpal tunnel from continually gutting fish...

Thanks all!

There's a few kernels of truth to this one.

The title alone got me, but the execution was marvelous--as to be expected with you two--great job

Can't help but wonder.. what exactly is "shucking" in this context? Sounds like it's some kind of euphemism..
Meriadoc - July 13, 2012 - Report this comment
Michael: We were hoping to at least score a niblet; think we managed a pone.

BAD: We two seem to have kept our knack in spite of a long absence, for which I am very grateful.

Phil: It is what it is - no cob-pollination going on here...

The cheese is mightier than the corn.
