lyrics

I wanna be a businessman
I wanna go out in the world and meet folks there
I want a job where I have an excuse to get all dressed up
Wash my clothes and comb my hair

Every night I lay in bed and look out at the stars
Wondering what it'd be like not living in a big old barn

I wanna work in an office or maybe the front of a store
I never get to see where the food we grow goes anyway
Out in the world I'll make a name for myself
I'll get to meet new faces everyday

I wanna go out in the world and let them know I'm here to stay
So I'm not just on this farm just wasting away

I don't wanna be a farm boy anymore
I don't wanna be a farm boy anymore
No longer will I labor in the sun
I don't wanna be a farm boy anymore
I wanna get off of this farm and I wanna have some fun

When I go out to do my morning chores
Every day I stand and dream by the door
All of the fields and rolling pastures out in front of me
Become a sprawling town for evermore

I don't care who I work for or how much I get paid
I don't like working for mean old mr. farmer anyway

I don't wanna be a farm boy anymore
I don't wanna be a farm boy anymore
No longer will I labor in the sun
I don't wanna be a farm boy anymore
I wanna work somewhere where I come home having fun

When I go out to live the life I've dreamed
I hope that it is as good as it seemed
Cause if I end up feeling the same
I know that I'll only have one person to blame

I don't wanna be a farm boy anymore
