I want to go and live on a mad farm
And laugh my life away.
I want to be surrounded by the silly
And indulge in daily horseplay.
I want nothing of serious discussion
Nor hear any more sad news.
I don’t want to be with the ignorant
And listen to their puerile views.
I know there are the starving in Africa
And to know that makes me sad,
But protesting against wars have led me nowhere
And it’s that heartlessness that has driven me mad.
I want to go live on a mad farm
Where there is no time of the day.
I want to go live with real people
Where there are no rules to obey.
