The Lyrics

Old McDonald's experience as a farmer in the countryside.
[Rooster crowing]

I, I work at my farm.
Ain't got time for pimpin'. (Pimpin')
Say you can call me Mickey D.
I must say I'm livin'... (Livin')

The rural life. Yeah. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
Work and tend for nothing. (Nothing)
Rural life. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
Maw brings home the stuffing. (Stuffing)

I've, I've got a prize cow.
Think I'm gonna milk it. (Milk it)
I ain't kidding. Say I got some filthy pigs.
Take 'em out the pen, wash 'em off.
Huhh! (Rural life) Look out.

Oh... (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
I work so hard, I'm sweating. (Sweating)
Oh, rural life. Yeah. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
My farm's not for petting. (Petting)

Come on now, where are you ducks?
You wanna go swimming or what?

I wanna take you to my barn.
You'll find an owl and lots of sheep.
We only get vittles, babe.
'Cause as a farmer, I eat, work, then sleep.

Oh...rural life. Yes. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
This is how I'm livin'. (Livin')
Hey...rural life. Mm. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
Mm, tendin', feedin', diggin'. (Diggin')
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Rural life. Oh. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
All things here are rustic. (Rustic)
Rural life. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
I think I'm gonna, I think I'm gonna... (Dust it)
I think I'm gonna buy some hay.

Hey, rooster. Now the bull. Yes.
(Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh) Check it out!


Rural life. Yeah. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
Nothin' like the city. (City)
Oh, rural life. Yes. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
Urban life's a pity. (Pity)
Hey, now. Rural life. Well. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
I think I wanna, I think I wanna...
[Hens clucking]
Here chick, chick, chick, chick....
Whoo! (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh) Yeah.

Take me to one of those power silos...right now.
Break it down!
Yes... uhh!

[Guitar solo]

Whoa! Ha!
Get out the way! Move over!
Farmer at work here!

Oh, rural life. That's right.
Ain't no other rubes like me.
I got a tall cornfield. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
I got a henhouse, too. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
See, I'm downright busy, babe. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)
All these things that I'm going through. (Ee-yi-ee-yi-oh)

Heyyy, heeyyy
Rural life, rural life, rural life.
Yes, yes!

Ah, that's it, that's it.
Time to retire, now.

Gaaagggg...! Cough-cough!
