Puttin' Up A Pole Barn


Lyrics

"Puttin' Up A Pole Barn"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Saturday afternoon, month of May, raccoon

Case o’ beer, moonshine, shoot a deer, land mine

Step on a duck, you know you’re in luck 

Big buck, rack of lamb, blame it all on Uncle Sam


I’m puttin’ up a pole barn, pole barn, pole barn

I’m puttin’ up a pole barn for you

Darlin’ I’m puttin’ up a pole barn, pole barn, pole barn 

I’m puttin’ up a pole barn fer you


Better not trespass, spit and snot, kick your ass

Have a chaw, sling shot, chainsaw, above the law

Me and my buds, wearin’ some old duds

Sippin’ suds, act a fool, stare at my above ground pool


I’m puttin’ up a pole barn, pole barn, pole barn

I’m puttin’ up a pole barn for you

Darlin’ I’m puttin’ up a pole barn, pole barn, pole barn 

I’m puttin’ up a pole barn fer you


Zoning ordinance, build a barbed wire fence

Town council meetings, people hurt my feelings

Don’t mow the lawn, go to the pawn shop

Ad hoc, shopping cart, fill it up down to the Wal- Mart


I’m puttin’ up a pole barn, pole barn, pole barn

I’m puttin’ up a pole barn for you

Darlin’ I’m puttin’ up a pole barn, pole barn, pole barn 

I’m puttin’ up a pole barn fer you


Heel-to-toe, doe-see-doe, catch a tiger by the toe

Eenie-meenie-miney-moe, watchin’ Jerry Springer’s show

Born to catch fish, satellite dish

Make a wish, it's not hard, Winnebago's in the front yard


I’m puttin’ up a pole barn, pole barn, pole barn

I’m puttin’ up a pole barn for you

Darlin’ I’m puttin’ up a pole barn, pole barn, pole barn 

I’m puttin’ up a pole barn fer you


Darlin' you've got a lot of junk, you like to call antiques

But the neighbors honey, they all think we're freaks

Don't worry babe, it'll be way bigger than a shed

I've got a job to do, and I hear it ringin' in my head


I’m puttin’ up a pole barn, pole barn, pole barn

I’m puttin’ up a pole barn for you

Darlin’ I’m puttin’ up a pole barn, pole barn, pole barn 

I’m puttin’ up a pole barn fer you


Well I’m puttin’ up a pole barn fer you

Yes, I'm puttin' up a pole barn for you, wahoo

Brief Description

An oft-requested, inexplicably likable parody of country.  I was going for a Dylanesque stream-of-consciousness song intended to poke fun at country songs, but it turned out to be a song many thought was actually a good country song itself, which should tell you something about country.  I messed up a couple lines in the "rap" part, but it doesn't really matter.
