are you listening?
In the pasture,
pies are steamin’
A beautiful sight
Their chewing cud tonight
Loading in a winter wonderland.
Gone away, is the wheat field
Gotta say, it was a good yield
Peterbuilt pelts a tune
As it rolls along
Hauling in a winter wonderland.
In the farmyard you can hear the farm kids,
Spinning the 4 wheeler pulling the sled around,
Moms screams out the door in a fright
“Calm down cause there’ll be no ER run tonight!”
As they dream new ways to terrify her
To face unafraid
The threats that she made
Playing in a winter wonderland.
When it snows
Ain’t it thrillin’
Though your nose, gets a chillin’
We’ll work and we’ll play the farmin’ way
Workin’ in a winter wonderland
Playin’ in a winter wonderland
