They Might Be Giants Charleston Lyrics

[JF:] You ready, John?

[JL:] I think so, yeah. We just made this song up today, like we do.

It’s about–it’s called The Music Farm. That’s the name of the song. This is how it goes.

Farm, farm

Music farm

Growing music straight out of the ground

Music chickens lay music eggs

You get the idea

Farm, farm

Music farm

Independent, family-owned

Threatened by

Agrimusic

You get the idea

Government paying subsidies

Music farmers take the cash

Only way they can survive

Paid to stop the song

Farm, farm

Music farm

What’s that sound coming out of the ground

Music milk from music cows

You get the idea

Music farm.
