This is the first part of the ‘safe’ song:
There once was a farmer who took a young miss
In back of the barn where he gave her a...
Lecture on horses and chickens and eggs
And told her that she had such beautiful...
Manners that suited a girl…….
You can easily see what should fit the rhyme. Much more risqué versions include the one called ‘The Auld Famer’ and “Gang Bang Lulu”. And people say today’s songs are tacky or over the top~
The Ramblers used to record questionable tunes under The Sweet Violet Boys and often musicians would write their names backwards Trebor instead of Robert.
This brief research come from spring, when my thoughts turn to the sweet scent of the violets growing in wild in my yard. It took me ages to find out what smelled so good each spring. Now, I cultivate them where others fight to eradicate them from their lawns. They are not very tall, especially once they start to get mown, but they come in purple, white, and a purple/white. I don’t have any yellow ones, we used to have those on the Oregon Coast. I can’t imagine the closing days of winter without them.
I love the smell of spring and the vivid colors in the grass as I lay out in the sun where the heat caresses my
cheek as I rest near the buzzing bees as they bumble from here to there and find nectar……
I should probably stop now before I really get into trouble!
