Performed by Matthew Curtis (multitracking)
Parody of the traditional German folk song about the life of the farmer (Im Märzen der Bauer).
In this version the farmer takes advantage of many of the technological and biotechnical opportunities of science but the world changes


This is the English version. The German original is also available on this site (Der Klonschafgesang).

In springtime the farmer shears all his cloned sheep
He clones them again and the numbers all leap
The field's full of ewes, not a ram in the pen
No bull and no he-goat just all oestrogen

The rake and the spade are all things of the past
His weapons all chemicals, quite unsurpassed
And battery chickens his money do yield
And no need to labour in meadow and field

The stable ladettes and the whole of his crew
They're all of them female or soon will be too
They drink of the stream from the factory there
Which flows to the river because they don't care

And when spring and summer have turned to the fall
The barn and the bank fill with goodies and all
And if we are eating the fat of the land
What care we that nature's effectively banned?
