Lyrics | A Day on the Farm

WAKE UP CALL

Who sir, told the rooster he could wake us up so early
Wake us up so early
Wake us up so early
I have heard complaining from the sheep,
so cute and curly, saying,
“Who sir, told the rooster he could wake us up at dawn?!”

Five more minutes…
Five more mintues…
Five more mintues…
Five more mintues…

Five more mintues…
Five more mintues…
Won’t you give us five minutes more
Little more

 

THE ROOSTER'S SONG

I'm a rooster and I'm proud
'Cause my voice is very loud
And I know that it’s important to the barnyard.
When the sun begins to peek
And the wind blows past my beak
I feel like I could cocka-doodle-doodle all day long.

THE SUN IS REACHING OUT TO ME
The sun is reaching out to me
To tell me of the day.
It whispers of laughter and playing with friends
And tells me I'm okay.

The sun is reaching out to me
The rays are all around.
They're kissing the flowers and hugging the hills
And warming up the ground.

 

HAVE YOU SEEN MY FEATHERS?

Have you seen my feathers?
Have you seen my comb?
I am wondering whether
I left them at home.
If I want the rooster
To see me at my best
I cannot be leaving these things
Back home in my nest.

THE HENS ARE MY FRIENDS

The hens are my friends
I think they're really neat.
The hens are my friends
They make my breakfast treat!
In pancakes and in pastries
Their eggs make morning tasty
Yes hens are my friends
And their eggs, they can't be beat!

 

THE DONKEY BLUES

“Carry this and carry that and move a little faster.”
I take orders from everyone; they all think they're the master.
I would like to take a rest, but this must be hauled and that must be fetched
Donkeys always do the work; I think it isn't fair.
Hee Haw!

 

THE BARNYARD CATS

We're the barnyard cats, we're the barnyard cats
We'll smile at you so sweet
But if you are a mouse, and we catch you in the house
You will be our tasty treat!
We're the barnyard cats, we're the barnyard cats
We're soft and warm and still
But if you are gray, and you scurry in our way
We have not yet had our fill. (leer)

LAZY AFTERNOON

It's a lazy afternoon
It's a lazy afternoon
So to fill up the hours
I'll go pick some wild flowers
Lazy afternoon

Sometimes I roll upon my back
And stare into the sky
I see the clouds so pillowy white
I wish that I could fly.

 

COUNTING THE SHEEP

Counting the sheep, counting the sheep
Sometimes it makes me so sleepy
Counting the sheep, counting the sheep
Sometimes I feel like falling asleep

Their bodies are pillows for my head
Just looking at sheep makes me think of my bed

 

HEY, DIDDLE DIDDLE

Hey, diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed to see such sport
And the dish ran away with the spoon

Hey, diddle diddle
We're geese in the middle of a tale
We heard is true
We'd like to stop and think
But you know that in a blink
We'll be off to something new.

 

MOOVE OVER

Moove over, moove over
Can't you see that you are in my way?
Moove over, moove over
I can't be spendin' time with you this way.

I have many things to do
For I must chew and chew and chew
I can't listen to your tail
For I must fill the milking pail

Moove over, moove over
Can't you see that you are in my way?
Moove over, moove over
I can't be spendin' time with you this way.

 

MUDDY PUDDLES

Muddy puddle
No, I can't
Black and mucky
No, I can't
I'm so clean now, I know I can't
But wouldn't it be lovely?

Soft and sticky
No, I can't
Irresistible
No, I can't
I'm so tempted
No, I can't!
I can't – – – help myself!

 

COUNTING THE SHEE (REPRISE)

Counting the sheep, counting the sheep
Sometimes it makes me so sleepy
Counting the sheep, counting the sheep
Sometimes I feel like falling asleep.

THE END
