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.
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.
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.
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.
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
