IPM 2017 Song – "Because We’re Farmers"

By Sherry McCall

 

LYRICS 


CHORUS
We’re plowing it down
We’re working it up
For everyone in the world to see.
A competition for this
A competition for that
The IPM is where it’s at!
“Because we’re farmers!” “Yes, we’re farmers!”

VERSE 1
We’re the Tented City,
Known as the IPM
In Ontario, we’re the “Crème de Le Crème”
For a hundred years,
We’ve been having this Fair
Our Talents we just like to share!

We travel around
From farm to farm
For only a week! So no need for alarm!
You can camp right on site or just visiting’s fine!
Come out and we’ll have a good time!

CHORUS
We’re plowing it down
We’re working it up
For everyone in the world to see!
We’re preparing the show,
The entertainment’s “A Go”
There’s no place you’d rather be!
“Because we’re farmers!” “Yes, we’re farmers!”

VERSE 2
We’re milking the cows
We’re raising the beef
We’re feeding the hogs and trimming the sheep.
We’re gathering the eggs for me and for you
That’s just the things that we do!

Come celebrate
Our Country’s Birthday!
We’ll light up the candles
And have us a cake!
One Hundred Fifty years young
That’s when it all begun!
Oh, Canada, we’re on guard for thee!

CHORUS
We’re plowing it down
We’re working it up
For everyone in the world to see!
We’re preparing the bed, so all will be fed!
We’re planting the almighty seed!
“Because we’re farmers!” “Yes, we’re farmers!”

VERSE 3
If you’ve ever wondered
About a farmer’s life
If you’ve ever wondered
About the farmer’s wife!
The tented City is the place to be
You “otta” come down and see!

The tractors are running
The Plowmen are set!
The Queens have their speeches,
All polished and prepped!
If the weather is “Fine”
No Rain or No Snow,
We’ll make the IPM
A #1 Show!

CHORUS
We’re plowing it down
We’re working it up
For everyone in the world to see!
A competition for this,
A competition for that.
The IPM is where it’s at!
“Because we’re farmers!” “Yes, we’re farmers!”

ENDING
“Because we’re farmers!” “Yes, we’re farmers!”
21st Century Agricultural Technologists!
“We’re farmers!”
See you at the “Huron County IPM!!”
“We’re farmers!”
Walton, Ontario – 2017
“We’re farmers!”
You all come down now, Ya Hear!
