Big Red Barn

Sittin’ all alone in my big red barn
Entertainin’ critters who don’t give a darn
Singin’ for ducks and geese and chickens
Bayin’ like a hound and playin’ like the dickens

Chorus:
Poor little me, sittin’ in the dust
No one to help me, no one to trust
Sittin’ n the shadow, yearnin’ for the sun
Nothing, nix, nil, naught, not even one

Just dust and feathers and why and whethers
Just “get to work” no get-togethers
Scores of chores, scores of yokels and boors
Love’s never gonna knock on these barn doors

Chorus:
Poor little me, should be sittin’ by the sea
No k-i-s-s-i-n-g
No l-u-v, no fun, fun, fun
No one to hold tight, not even one

This big red barn is startin’ to lean
But I’m sittin here rockin’ like a barnyard queen
Roof’s caved in, floor’s rotted through
Just held together with cobweb glue

Chorus:
Poor little me, sittin’ in the dust
No one to help me, no one to trust
Sittin’ n the shadow, yearnin’ for the sun
Nothing, nix, nil, naught, zero, zilch, none

The big red barn finally fell to the ground
I packed while ducks quacked all around
Sold the chickens for a ticket and new bikini
Flew south with the geese, hope no one seen me

Chorus:
Poor little me, finally sittin’ by the sea
Just k-i-s-s-i-n-g
They’re getttin’ in line, one by one
He’s next . . . . . . . . you’re done
