A Week-End In The Country Lyrics

Verse:

(Josh:) With golf and tennis 'round you

And no cares to hound you;

(Dinah:) When Mother Nature beckons, who can decline?

(Ezra:) Till Mother Nature vetoes

The bees and mosquitoes,

Mother Nature is no mother of mine!

(Josh & Dinah:) From Saturday night to Monday morn,

There's always joy ahead;

(Ezra:) From Saturday night to Monday morn,

I wish that I were dead!

Chorus 1:

(Josh & Dinah:) A weekend in the country

Never will let you down;

(Ezra:) You'll pardon my effront'ry,

I'd rather spend it in town.

(Josh & Dinah:) A weekend in the country,

Healthy and full of sport:

(Dinah:) And then it isn't small potatoes

(Josh:) When you get those fresh tomatoes,

(Ezra:) I've a list of fresh tomatoes

Suing me now in court!

(Dinah:) Ah, gimme the milk from the moo cow,

(Josh:) Of corn right from the field I'm fond;

(Ezra:) In town I'd be splurgin'

On Venison and Sturgeon

Bestride a beautiful blonde.

(Josh & Dinah:) A weekend gets you sunburned,

Vitamin A you win;

(Ezra:) I'd rather get back unburned

With my original skin.

(Josh & Dinah:) A weekend in the country,

Glorious, there's no doubt;

(Ezra:) A weekend in the country,

What's the next train out?

Chorus 2:

(Josh & Dinah:) A weekend in the country,

Trees in the orchard call;

(Ezra:) When you've examined one tree,

Then you've examined them all.

(Josh & Dinah:) A weekend in the country,

Happily we endorse:

(Dinah:) Come get your share of nature's bounty,

(Josh:) Ride the trail around the county;

(Ezra:) I am no Canadian mounty,

Why do I need a horse?

(Dinah:) Hark, hark to the song of the bull frog,

(Josh:) At dawn, you'll rise up with the lark;

(Ezra:) When roosters will riot,

I'd much prefer the quiet

Of Forty-Second and Park.

(Josh & Dinah:) Get peppy and alivey,

Don't be a city poke!

(Ezra:) I once got poison ivy,

(Dinah:) Will you try for poison oak?

(Josh:) A weekend in the country,

(Dinah:) di*key-bird's overhead,

(Ezra:) A weekend in the country,

I should have stood in bed!
