    ( To the tune of MC Hammer’s “You Can’t Touch This” ) My, my, my, my haystack hits me, so hard; makes me say, oh my Lord, thank you for blessing me, with all these chickens and little piggies; I look good, when I’m knealing down, sittin’ on my bucket, milkin my cow, and I’m known…all around this land, as the best darn, farm hand!!!
