It's been one week...


Our week at the Larimer County Fair, complete with lyrics to my bastardized version of the most excellent song "One Week" by the Barenaked Ladies.  Enjoy.



It's been one week since our Fair debut
Hustled off to be interviewed
Five days since animals came to stay
Get all the rabbits and chicks put away
Four days since the rabbit show
Thought it would be a partial day, what do I know?
Today we're still going strong, can I ever be alone?
Hey, it'll still be one day till I say I'm done

Hold it now and watch the dress-a-bunny
And it make you stop, think
You'll think you're looking at M&Ms
I summon kids to the barns, to clean the cages,
Feed the rabbits
Hot like Colorado, storms just for fun
Big flood and hail
'Cause I want to be locked inside
Bits n Pieces got the mad cows
Ok they're not mad, but I'm sure they are bovine
Gonna make a break and take a shower,
'Cause I'm a stinkin' achin' mess

Gotta see the rodeo, 'cause then you'll know
Crazy people ride on bulls
For awhile
Then they're flying off through the air.

How can I help if I think it's fun even when its mad
Tryin' hard to smile though I feel dead
I'm the kind of gal who keeps going still
Can't understand what I mean? Well, you soon will
I have the tendancy to wear myself to a nub
I have a history of taking a nap, but I can't

Butterscotch the brand new chicken
Jojo gone, I'm not heartbroken
Watchin' awards shows, what a scene
We're dans petit arene
I hope Stella gets something in this one
Like Sandis did for rabbits,
And for Vet Science,
And for record book,
I think little sister's gonna blow
Gotta remind her
She did her Champion in June
They're dancing Pueblo soon
Gotta get across the fair
Gotta see the kids exhibits and try to stare,
But not so long I fall asleep
Gotta get to see the Open class
Cause that's last,
Before I tip my glass.

How can I help if I think it's fun even when its mad
Tryin' hard to smile though I feel dead
I'm the kind of gal who keeps going still
Can't understand what I mean? Well, you soon will

Hey, it'll still be one day till I say I'm done
It'll still be one day till I say I'm done
Get those poster boards and go home...
