However, everyone and their sister has been humming the tune or singing the lyrics of the theme song to me ever since I informed them of our family’s future plans to move to the farm, so I am pretty much an expert and have it memorized.
Here are the “Green Acres” opening credits and the lyrics in case you don’t know them or need a refresher…
Green acres is the place to be
Farm living is the life for me
Land spreading out, so far and wide
, just give me that countryside Manhattan
I get allergic smelling hay
I just adore a penthouse view
Darling, I love you, but give me Park Avenue
You are my wife
Goodbye city life
Green Acres, we are there!
The line “goodbye city life” seems to hit home right now…
Goodbye to the conveniences of city life.
Hello to the
isolation simplicity of country life.
Goodbye high-speed internet.
Hello dial-up…(hopefully not for long).
Goodbye rush-hour traffic and road construction.
Hello to being stuck behind a tractor on a gravel road…when it hasn’t washed out.
Goodbye to changes in elevation.
Goodbye Target…you will truly be missed (muffled sobbing)…
Hello…Walmart? What, there is no Walmart?! What is Alco?
Anyways, welcome to my new blog. I’m not sure how often I’ll post, or what I’ll be posting about, but many of you have been
pestering encouraging me to keep you informed of our life at the farm.
Welcome to our life at Green Acres.
