County Agent’s Song

 

The County Agent's Song (in the key of C)

We are, we are, we are, we are, the County Agents bunch

We are, we are, we are, we are, the crowd that has the punch

And when you see us coming

You'd better clear the track

For we've got five husky fellows whose names begin with Mac.

 

Chorus:

Hallelujah, keep more livestock

Hallelujah, more manure

Hallelujah, balanced rations

All farms must pay more.

 

We are, we are, we are, we are, a handsome looking crowd

We don't believe in boasting, in fact it's not allowed

But if your cow gets dopey,

and falls off at the pail

We'll put her on her feet again by twisting on her tail.

 

Chorus:

 

We never have much trouble, and there's nothing much to do

We just run around the county, and make a call or two

We work all day and half the night

We seldom do get home

And we never have a minute that we can call our own.

 

Chorus:

 

Now if you have a problem, and don't know what to do

Just call the county office, and they'll give you all that's new

Or if you have the spavins

Or if you have the rot

You can call your county agent, and he'll tell you on the spot.

 

Chorus:

 

There's just one thing that puzzles us and leaves us in the dark

And that is how the Specialists can often miss the mark

Some of them are Ph.D.'s

They all have their B.S.

But when they hit the county, they sure do make a mess

 

Chorus:
