The Lyrics

This one is a bit of a hybrid parody, containing some of the story-line and lyrics from Graham Nash's "Marrakesh Express"...FYI - Joni Mitchell & Graham Nash were, item for a while in the late 1960's and early 1970's...
(Piano Intro)

cows on farm go 'moo'
and then they give out milk that's fresh
going to Marrakesh
I'll get on board that train

Cows 'moo'
ducks and chickens call, too
step in their 'poo'
put on some clean shoes
and go to Marrakesh, yes

Well, I'm tired of
pigs 'oinkin'
'cause I'd much rather
be 'boinkin'
some Canadian chick
Excrement; P.U.
Mucking stalls is screwed
branding calves...
not much laughs...

(Piano break)

{In background}
(Haw, hee-haw-hee-haw-hee-haw

no more donkey's brayin'
on that farm; I won't be stayin'
farm work sure does blow
Gonna hop onboard that train to
Oh-oh-oh-oh, yes-ess-ess-ess

cleaning up animal 'poo'
put new shoes on my feet
that lady waves to me
calls, "all onboard that train"

{Sound of Locomotive going past and then fading out in the background - as Locomotive sound fades, in a light, just-above whispered tone}

(All onboard that train to Marra-keh-heh-hesh...yes)

Takes me back to my early farm days...I loved the smell of "Nag poo" in the morning...5's

thanks, alvin - AFW, it's a lot cleaner writing about farm stuff than actually doing it...I remember that from an old "National Lampoon" piece by Michael O'Donahue (sp?) from WA-AA-AY back"the pen is mightier than the plowshare; as a writer you rarely, if ever, have to get up at six in the morning to shovel manure"

me too Rick - I love Joni and her honey voice - btw Paul, is "boinking" the US version of our (and the UK's) "bonking" or are you using artistic licence? - 555

Good job, Paul... I originally heard Sarah McLachlan's version, but I was able to keep up with the pacing nonetheless.

Good job, Paul. It's a mix of plaintive and

Didn't know that this one would get much response...not sure how many would know the OS...Rick C, I really like Joni's stuff, too...I've done a few other pieces off her works that you might particular "Grappling with Rapelling; Dope on a Rope" to "All I Want" and "Spray Mace on You" to her OS "A Case of You"...and I've been looking at some of her other songs off the "Blue" album...if nothing else, it's a grand excuse to listen to them all again...Stu - That would depend on if "bonking" means what I think it means...which I think it does...are we being cryptic enough here?? I guess you are asking if "boinking" has anything to do"scroo-ing" (sp - intentional)...and...uh...yeah - it does...MrMac - never heard Sarah's version...probably interesting...hard to imagine it being better than Joni's, though...but cover efforts are often interesting in their own right...Adagio...thanks! Yeah, that's the tone and mood to my interpretation of it...dealing with the "Age-old" question...How ya' gonna keep 'em down on the farm...? LOL...
