The County Fair
Oh, let’s go out to the county fair
And breathe the balmy country air,
And whittle a stick and look at the hosses,
Discuss the farmer’s profit and losses
We’ll take a look at the country stock
And drink some milk from a dairy crock
Look at the pigs and admire the chickens,
And try to forget it’s hot as the dickens.
Forget there are any political rings
Just think of the butter and eggs and things:
So wash off the buggy and hitch up the mare,
And we’ll all go out to the county fair.
