Bobby Joe and Betty got a real nice farm
Everybody knows that they work real hard
Bobby Joe sweatin' in the noonday sun
Betty right beside him till the work's all done

But every now and then, they get a strong desire
To crawl up in the hay, and set the barn on fire

Now, the hay needs haulin', the hogs need slop
The corn needs cuttin', but the tractor's stopped
They're climbin' up the ladder clear to the loft
Shuckin' those dirty ol' work clothes off
Singin' "Brown, chicken, brown cow"
(Ain't nobody watchin' but the)
Brown chicken, brown cow

Black crow sittin on a weather vane
He can see 'em comin' from a mile away
Yeah, he's caw-caw-cawin' out a loud alarm
Hey, ol' Bobby Joe and Betty are headin' for the barn

Now, the chicken ain't peckin', and the cow won't eat
They're fightin' for a front row seat

Ha ha

Now, the hay needs haulin', the hogs need slop
The corn needs cuttin', but the tractor's stopped
They're climbin' up the ladder clear to the loft
Shuckin' those dirty ol' work clothes off
Singin' "Brown, chicken, brown cow"
(Ain't nobody watchin' but the)
Brown chicken, brown cow

Yeah

Now, the hay needs haulin', the hogs need slop
The corn needs cuttin', but the tractor's stopped
They're climbin' up the ladder clear to the loft
Shuckin' those dirty ol' work clothes off
Singin' "Brown, chicken, brown cow"
(Ain't nobody watchin' but the)
Brown chicken, brown cow

(Ain't nobody watchin')
Brown chicken, brown cow
(Ain't nobody watchin' but)
Brown chicken, brown cow
Only one watchin', baby
(Ain't noby watchin')

Oops
