Farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection

What's your name? (Peter and Bob)
What's your age? (we're 23)
Where do you live? (we live on the farm)
What do you do? (we plant weed)

We gotta do what we do 'cause we can't draw dough
We've gotta earn our living
But every time the drug squad comes in June
Bam goes another week's wages, Bam goes another week's food

Farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection

What happened next? (policemen come)
What did they do? (they make a raid)
What did you do? (we stood still)
What did they do? (they drove away)

We try to sit in the field to protect out weed
We've gotta earn our living
But when the law swooped down and took away our weed
Bam went another week's wages, Bam went the family's feed

Farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection

Hey diddle diddle, policeman on the fiddle
He sold all the drugs to the man in the middle
Who put it on a plane for Heathrow central
It was picked up by a hippie in a Hertz car rental
Drove it into town and split it into parts
Sold it to his friends at the nick party
And talked about a life, but missed all the points, points, points, points, points, points, points
He sat legged and passed around the joint
So they inhaled the West Indian export
He talked about lifed but missed all the points, points, points, points, points, points, points

Meanwhile back on the farm
We're still working hard
We've got deadlines to meet
We're rushed off our feet

We've got to replant the seed that nine months to grow
And we've gotta earn a living
But if the crops don't show, we're gonna starve
Bam goes another year's wages, goodbye to life on the farm

Farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
