Beside Me I Dreamed I Stopped Smoking Might as Well Saturday Evening Down in Verdun
Car Keys Id Rather Walk Old Man Santo Spill Yer Guts
Carla I Tried Old Mutt Murphy Ten Years Younger
Couldnt We Joes Report from the AfterLife Perpetual Motion Water & Stone
Flower of the middle Class   Rosy Rear View When I was a Young Man

       

Old Man Santo had a Farm

Old Man Santo had a Farm

 

Old Man Santo had a farm E-I-E-I-O

 

And on this farm he grew some wheat  E-I-E-I-O

He thought making more money would be really sweet E-I-G-M-O

So he spliced a gene here and  he spliced a gene there

Here a gene there a gene everywhere he spliced a gene

Good-bye genes bad hygiene

 

First he flogs his Franken food

It's immune to bugs and weeds

And each year he bakes bigger better bread by selling you the seeds.

 

Old Man Santo had some farm E-I-G-M-O

 

And on this farm he had some sheep ….Ba-Ba-G-M-O

He thought making more money would be really sweet Ba-Ba-C-L-O-N-E

So he cloned a sheep here and he cloned a sheep there

Here a sheep there a sheep everywhere he cloned a sheep

Hello dolly, Hello dolly, Hello dolly, Hello dolly

 

Old Man Santo had some farm  Ba-Ba-C-L-O-N-E

 

And on that farm he had some chickens - cluck cluck cluck  atch-oo.

And every last chicken come down with the flu - cluck cluck  atch-oo.

There was a chicken flew here and a chicken flu there

Here flu there flu everywhere the chicken flew

Hope you know what to do when the chickens give their flu to you.

 

Old Man Santo had some farm - cluck cluck cluck  atch-oo

 

And on this farm he had some cows Moo-Moo-G-M-O

Some beef,  some dairy and some very mad cows   B-S-E-G-M-O

There was mad cows here and mad cows there

Really bloody pissed off mad cows everywhere.

It got really bad.

Why are are all the cows so mad?

 

First they fed them to each other  - then they fed them sheep with scrapies

Turned them into cannibals -  fed the mothers to the babies

And if they did that to you, I bet you'd get pretty mad too.

 

Old Man Santo had some farm – B-S-E- G-M-O

 

Well he's got frankenwheat he's got cloned sheep,  lime disease and killer bees

West Nile virus,  the DDT's, Swine Fever,  Chicken flu and BSE….

 

Old Man Santo had a farm E-I-E-I-O

 

So the West Nile mosquito bit the hen with chicken flu

that they fed to the mad cow that they fed to you.
