Crazy Farm

A cat upon a hot tin roof
Danced with a cow that raised a hoof
And asked if the cat would marry her
And all the cat would say is Purr!

The farmer hearing such a din
Upon his roof said it was a sin
That animals would behave this way
Upon his roof in the heat of the day

He called his wife to see the fuss
But she had left for town upon the bus
So he chased them off by grabbing a broom
Round the yard and into a room

Where the cat meowed and the Cow did Moo
And the farmers screamed Shoo, shoo, shoo
Until at last he got them out
And then let go with a victory shout

The Cat sprung back on the roof outside
The cow followed after, where else could it hide
And the farmers rushing out from being inside
Just sat down and he cried and he cried.

His wife came home she had bought a fiddle
She gave it to the cat and asked it a riddle
The cat just laughed in a catty kind of way
The cow then asked if the cat could play

At that the cat played such a wonderful tune
That the cow then said it was over the moon
The farmers' dog laughed at all this fun
And the farmer collapsed from too much sun.
