I AM JUST A SCARECROW

I AM JUST A SCARECROW
BUT MY LIFE IS NOW QUITE DIRE
THEY HAVE DECIDED THIS YEAR
TO PUT ME ON A FIRE

WHO IS THIS CHAP CALLED GUY FAULKES
I DO NOT WANT TO BE HIM
I LOVE TO STAND IN MY FIELD
AND SCARE UPON A WHIM

I’M VERY GOOD AT MY JOB
I SCARE AWAY THE CROWS
AND I DIDN’T MIND THE ROBIN
WHO NESTED IN MY NOSE

AND THERE WAS JENNY WREN
WHO’S SNUGGLED IN MY POCKET
AND NOW THEY WANT TO SET LIGHT TO ME
LIKE THEY DO THE ROCKETS

WHY CANT THEY MAKE THIS NEW GUY
AND LEAVE ME WELL ALONE
HE WONT MIND BEING SET ALIGHT
FOR HE HAS GOT NO HOME

THEY MADE ME YEARS AND YEARS AGO
I’M REALLY WEARING WELL
IV’E GOT A FEATHER IN MY CAP
AND HAVE A CHIMING BELL

I’M FEELING RATHER SAD TODAY
AS YOU CAN UNDERSTAND
IV’E A BELLY FULL OF STRAW
AND RUBBER GLOVES FOR MY HANDS

WHAT WILL THE FARMER DO
TO SCARE THE BIRDS AWAY
IF I’M NOT THERE TO SHOO
THEM FROM HIS CROPS EACH DAY

DO YOU KNOW WHAT I WISH
THAT IT SHOULD RAIN ALL DAY
ON THE DATE NOVEMBER 5TH
THEN THEY’LL STAY AWAY

AND IF IT SHOULD NOT RAIN
I’LL HIDE IN THE BARN
FOR I CANT STAND THE PAIN
OF LEAVING THIS OLD FARM

IF THEY COULD ONLY SPRUCE ME UP

I’LL GET THE KIDDIES ON MY SIDE
NEW NECKERCHIEF AROUND MY NECK
IN THE FIELD I’D TAKE SOME PRIDE

WHEN FARMER JONES HE MADE ME
HE THOUGHT ME RATHER GOOD
SO WHY HAS HE FORSAKEN ME
TO BURN ME UP LIKE WOOD

I’VE STOOD ABOUT IN THIS FIELD
FORTY YEAR OR MORE
I KNOW WHICH BIRDS TO SCARE
I REALY KNOW THE SCORE

OH’ FARMER JONES DONT DO THIS
YOUR TRUST I’M SURE I’LL EARN
I’VE BEEN OUT IN THIS FIELD SO LONG
I’M SURE TO GREEN TO BURN

THE LITTLE CHILDREN LOVE ME
ESPECIALY MY FRIEND NELL
FOR IF THEY CAME FOR ME TODAY
SHE’D HIDE ME IN THE WELL

THE DAY IS HERE, THE TIME HAS COME
THE PARTY SPIRITS HIGH
HOT DOGS,TOFFEE APPLES AND FIREWORKS
WAITING TO LIGHT UP THE SKY

THE CHILDREN THEY HAVE SAVED ME
WITH A BUNDLE OF OLD CLOTHES
SOME WELLY BOOTS, A TURNIP HEAD
AND A CARROT FOR HIS NOSE

THEY STOOD ABOUT IN A CIRCLE
AND HERE’S THE REASON WHY
WHEN NOBODY WAS LOOKING
THEY MADE A CHAP CALLED GUY

SO MY LIFE HAS BEEN SAVED TODAY
I CAN LIVE WITHOUT FEAR
WELL THAT IS OF COURSE
UNTILL NOVEMBER 5TH NEXT YEAR.

I AM JUST A SCARECROW
