FUNNY FARM

There’s a place in the country

a long way from town,

That is home to a person

named Old Farmer Brown.


It’s a place on a hillside

with likable charm,

And it’s known to young children

as Brown’s Funny Farm.


Farmer Brown has a rooster

that cackles and sings,

And a hen that eats drum sticks

with barbecued wings.


There’s a goose made of chocolate

with marshmallow legs,

And a pig that eats bacon

with fried scrambled eggs.


Farmer Brown has a tractor

with wagons of wheat,

And a barn full of critters

with bad smelling feet.


There’s a pond just for swimming

with snorkels and fins,

But mostly the place is for

giggles and grins.
