At The Fair Lyrics
Saturday, August 30, 2008
Listen (MP3)

I went down to the valley to pray
Came to the fair and I stayed all day
I walked around and I got happy
At the Fair

One of these days, it won't be long
They call my name and I'll be gone
So gimme a hot dog with mustard on
At the Fair

At the Fair (At the Fair)
At the Fair (At the Fair)
I walk around and I feel happy at the Fair (At the Fair)


I'll go down and see the Llamas,
Llama dads and llama mamas
All the llamas are for Obama
At the Fair

I'll go up to Machinery Hill
Sit on tractors standing still
And relive that boyhood thrill
At the Fair

CHO.

BREAK

Go to an old church dining hall
Scrambled eggs and ham and all
The Lutheran coffee you can tol-
Erate at the Fair.

CHO.

Take the sky ride over the trees
Smell the hot dogs and the cheese
Hear the barkers' liturgies
At the Fair

City folks and old cowhands,
Geezers and teenage romance
Horse patrols and country bands
At the Fair.

CHO.

BREAK

Corn dogs, hot dogs: take your pick
Chocolate covered bacon---- ick
Tater Tots on a stick
At the Fair.

CHO.
