Down on the Farm

 

How you gonna keep them, down on the farm,
After they’ve seen Sydney.
How you gonna keep ’em away from Kings Cross,
Jazzin’ around, painting the town,
How you gonna keep ’em away from harm,
That’s the mystery,

They’ll never want to see a rake or plough,
And who the hell can –
Yankee-do a cow,
So how you gonna keep ’em down on the farm,
After they’ve been on leave!
