  • Bobby Joel and Betty got a real nice farm
    Everybody knows that they work real hard
    Bobby Joel sweatin' in the noonday sun
    Betty right beside him 'til the work's all done
    But every now and then they get a strong desire
    To crawl up in the hay and set the barn on fire

    Now the hay needs haulin', the hogs need slop
    The corn needs cuttin' but the tractor's stopped
    They climbin' up the ladder, clear through the loft
    Shuckin' those dirty ol' work clothes off

    Singin' brown chicken, brown cow
    (Ain't nobody watchin' but the)
    Brown chicken, brown cow
    Yeah

    Black crow sittin' on a weather-vane
    He can see 'em comin' from a mile away
    Yeah, he's call-call-callin' out a loud alarm
    Hey, ol' Bobby Joel and Betty headin' for the barn

    Now the chicken ain't peckin' and the cow won't eat
    They're fightin' each other for a front row seat
    Now the hay needs haulin', the hogs need slop
    The corn needs cuttin' but the tractor's stopped
    They climbin' up the ladder, clear through the loft
    Shuckin' those dirty ol' work clothes off

    Singin' brown chicken, brown cow
    (Ain't nobody watchin' but the)
    Brown chicken, brown cow
    Yeah

    Now the hay needs haulin', the hogs need slop
    The corn needs cuttin' but the tractor's stopped
    They climbin' up the ladder, clear through the loft
    Shuckin' those dirty ol' work clothes off

    Singin' brown chicken, brown cow
    (Ain't nobody watchin' but the)
    Brown chicken, brown cow
    (Ain't nobody watchin')

    Brown chicken, brown cow
    (Ain't nobody watchin' but)
    Brown chicken, brown cow
    Only one watchin', baby
    (Ain't nobody watchin')

  • Suz from Lumberton TxGo Trace. Never worry about what people say. Congrats on your family
  • Karen from Manchester, NhMy only "problem" with this song is that both of my young daughters are big Trace fans and love this song; thankfully, most of the innuendo goes right over their heads, and the video is hilarious, so I'm good.
