This must be the farmer in me, I guess...
STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH
A man should know the price he'll have to pay
for any cow or piglet he will buy
unless he's got the cash to throw away
for buying something then to wonder why!
He's got to look a horse deep in its eyes
and check its teeth--the bottom of its feet
this is a time he's got to scrutinize
and not the time when he should be descreet.
And so's the world will know, he's not from fools,
when he's about to pick his loving wife
it's best he read the Spinster's Book Of Rules
or he'll be paying all of his miserable life!
And then he's got to make some rules hisself,
to check his mate, as surely as he did
how much this pig will weigh in seven years
and will this goat give him lots of kids?
Now we could go on all day and all night
just making up some better rules for bliss
but that would only lead us to a fight
and I'd lots rather kiss.
