Down on the farm
Where the chickens run free
??? the old oak tree

Coming undone
It's a party, unwind
Smokin' that grass
Gonna have a good time

My blood, my sweat, my bones
My blood, my sweat, my bones
And that's not all

It's on
Feel pretty and free
Playing guitars
And beating them drums
Twiddling knobs
And sucking my thumb

My blood, my sweat, my bones
My blood, my sweat, my bones
And that's not all

Nobody ever meant to tell you
Our hearts could beat as one
