  • Old Farmer Buck he bought him a duck
    And he cut off her feet 'cause her walked in the muck
    And when her wouldn't go for to root like a crow
    He cut off her head for to make her do so?
    Why did he go and act thicky way?
    'Cause he were a fool and a gurt big fool
    'Cause he were a fool us all do say

    Old Farmer Bourn he bought him a horn
    For to rouse himself up in the chill of the morn
    He always do know when its time for to blow
    'Cause he wakes up as soon as the rooster do crow
    Why did he go and act thicky way?
    'Cause he were a fool and a gurt big fool
    'Cause he were a fool us all do say

    Old Farmer Bunn he bought him a gun
    And he looked down the barrel to see how 'twere done
    The very first try he got it in the eye
    And he didn't have time to say "Goodbye!"
    Why did he go and act thicky way?
    'Cause he were a fool and a gurt big fool
    'Cause he were a fool us all do say Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
