about

We all heard the conspiracy theory that the American government is recruiting lesbian farmers to displace heterosexuals in the industry - and of course, we all wished it were true! While it sadly may not have happened in reality, it's very real in this new cowpunk romp from Stephanie MacIntire.

The B-side, "The Problem," is an anthemic rocker about the anxieties of the modern generation. A previous version was recorded by DC indie-punk band Nervous Pudding.

lyrics

Well, the folks in D.C. looked up one day
And they saw that the heartland looked a little too straight
So they rounded up dykes from Portland to Brooklyn
To put a queer touch on the food that you're cooking
Now from OK to Iowa, there's an invasion
Of tough, butch gays of the female persuasion

I'm a federally-funded lesbian farmer
Old MacDonald better lock up his daughter
I'll turn her into a man-hating feminist
I'm just here to make an honest living
Working hard, ploughing, tilling
And when I'm done, shucks, get me a girl to kiss!

Well, it seemed like the job was right on the nose
'Cause we've all got plenty of flannel clothes
And it seems like farming goes much faster
Behind the wheel of my Subaru tractor
Yes, making things grow is great work to do
And hey, little lady, I could grown on you

I'm a federally-funded lesbian farmer
Old MacDonald better lock up his daughter
I'll turn her into a man-hating feminist
I'm just here to make an honest living
Working hard, ploughing, tilling
And when I'm done, shucks, get me a girl to kiss!
