Misery Farm

Misery Farm

(Jay Wallis / Dunbar Carey) 1929

Fred Elizalde & his Music


We’ve got a farm a barn of a farm
Right in the middle of a swamp
There aint any charm in our little farm
Right in the middle of a swamp
Nothing’s grown since the day we came
Misery Farm is our farm’s name

We’re miserable, so miserable
Down on Misery Farm.
So are the animals, so are the vegetables
Down on Misery Farm

The hens won’t lay
We can’t make hay
We work all day
And we get no pay
We’re miserable, so miserable
Down on Misery Farm
