So I’m cutting the grass yesterday when it occurred to me that almost every kid’s song has to do with farmers. No shit. Farmers.
Old Macdonald had a farm, right? And what exactly does E-I-E-I-O mean?
There was a farmer who had a dog and Bingo was his name-o. Name-o? Couldn’t find anything else to rhyme with Bingo, huh? Hell. Just use E-I-E-I-O.
Farmer In The Dell, which features the creepiest line: “The farmer takes a wife…” What kind of arranged marriage is going on there? Do Pakistani people actually farm? I thought they all just handled customer service for AT&T.
Bears going over mountains. Telling kids to blow a man down. Kids songs are crazy.
