The Lyrics

Figures he typed
On an elder Dell
Counting his ewes and moos
Motherboard sparks
And it starts to smell
Opens the case for clues

Fingers poking
RAM was smoking
Small parts all were charred

Farmer in the Dell
Farmer in the Dell

Poked around and poked around
And poked around and poked around for news
Plugged this, pulled that, blew damn fuse

Grumbling, he carried
His data fortress
Mall not far away
Thoughtful techies
Fixed his ‘puter
Took it home that day

Then blue screen and
Smoke was soon viewed
Pop went ‘lectric sound

Farmer lost the Dell
Farmer lost the Dell

Loud was sound, and sound was loud
Sound was loud, and smoke was hue of blue
Dell sound brought scowl on brow too

He got peeved,
He smacked the casing
Case fell on the floor
Kicked it hard,
And tagged the power
Threw him ‘cross the floor

Here’s one tip that
You should know ‘bout
Current flows to ground

Farmer and the Dell
Farmer and the Dell

Ground was found, it found the ground
Ground was found, he found the ground through shoe
Bang sound, spun round, he turned blue

Suddenly flew
To a brighter realm
Flying to new gates of pearl
Peter just smiled,
Said that all is well
“Welcome to heav’nly world.”

Farm guy gazed down
Saw his farm and
Plot in field of green.

Farmer in the dell
Farmer in the dell
Farmer in the dell
Farmer in the dell

In case you hadn't guessed by my submission today, I'm old enough to remember this song. I haven't had a single though of this song in 45 years! Although maybe I should have, as it was a very nice tune

Lucky the farmer didn't go to the other place............I always liked the music and melody of this tune...We used to dance to it as teens.........Chalk up another hit for you, Warren

Bill- I thank you from the depths of my innards.
AFW- Thanks, AFW. Much appreciated.
Jonathan- Gracias.
Callmelennie- The Hollies were one of those bands who quietly had a whole bunch of great songs, but no one could remember the name of the band. Glass Moon, a band from North Carolina, did a faithful version of this song in the 80s, a song I remember spinning back in my college radio days. BTW, can you believe this is the first time On A Carousel has been parodied on the site?
Dave W.- I thought about sending the farmer there, especially since 'dell' rhymes with 'very warm place no one wishes to visit', but I barely knew the farmer so I didn't feel quite right judging him harshly. Thanks for the comments.
