Thank you to the farmers.

So many hate the farmers,

they don't like tractors on the roads,

especially those with trailers

and a slow and heavy load.

They moan about the cattle

they complain they hear them moo,

and phone up to say the bale stack

is blocking up their view.

But when the roads are icy

and then it starts to snow,

and they're stuck on hills and ditches

and can't get their car to go

The first one that they phone up

is the guy down on the farm,

they know he's got a tractor

and it can't do any harm.

And suddenly he's a hero

with a tractor and a rope,

the first one that they call out

when they cannot cope.

And he always takes the call out

he doesn't want your money,

he'll do his best to help you

I think it's rather funny.

Because they will soon forget him

when the snow has gone away,

and they're stuck behind his trailer

loaded up with hay.
