The Lyrics

...thanks to invisible boy and AFW for the idea...
hey, fellas, have ya heard the news ?
ya know a lawyer's moved to town
it won't take long, just watch and see
till the farm life wears that fella down
his place ain't haney's to blame
he sure soaked him, doncha know
and in my eyes, it wasn't wise
but its that farm the sucker chose

well, its been ten weeks or maybe more
since he first came into view
his best half is his wife, i'd say
not a saggy crone, a beaut !
he seems surprised, but she's gotten wise
to the hickish ways we love
but he just keeps farmin' along
undismayed that the soil is rough

corn is risin' from the ground
but its hardly big and fat
it ain't the kind where people'd wanna pay
no one wants their corn like that
some say he is in a bind
cause he ain't countrified, this dude
in his way, he plays a more city-like game
when he tries to raise crops...for food

he works so the dirt and grime
toils both night and day
frustrated 'bout a thousand times
undaunted, he still tries
green acres is where he's come
i think he's here to stay
come to stay in green acres
green acres
green acres

...part two tomorrow...

As is often the case with your work, I'm green with envy.

Everyone on that show gets it except Eddie Albert. He fights a losing battle constantly but his blond wife was not behind the door when God passed out the brains. My fave has got to me Ed Ziffle with his son/pet Arnold. Well done sir and what JB says - about being green with envy. This is a real HOOTerville.
