In which Hank sings a song about Farmville. Because there aren't enough songs about Farmville. Thanks to Abbey for the cover art farm, thanks to Shmed for the drumming and bass guitar and production, as always. Thanks the Zynga for creating such a horribly addictive game. And thanks to everyone who used the Photomatron to help make this video awesome.

LYRICS AND CHORDS:

I [G]just made a discovery that [D]may change my [C]life
While I was [G]clicking through this new-fangled [D]facebook [C]site
It's a place where I can live the life I've always dreamed
without really ever doing any[G]thing
which is [C]good because I don't like doing [G]things
Now my [D]life isn't so important to [G]me
since there's an[D]other place I'd much rather [D]be

[G]down on the [C]farm where the [C]sky is always [G]blue
and we [G]never kill the [D]pigs and the [G]cows never poo
and [G]everything's a[C]dorable and I know every[G]one
and we can [G]plant any[C]thing under this [G]never-setting sun
oh it [C]hasn't gotten old
and I hope it never [G]will
let me intro[C]duce you to my new home.
[D]Farm[G]ville

I drag my ragged ass to work, yeah I can barely lift my feet
I'm operating on about four hours' sleep
I was up all night growing food to feed the world
just me and an army of girls
friendless twelve year-old girls
The boss throws me a pile of work without so much as a hello
and suddenly I know exactly where I wanna go

[G]down on the [C]farm where the [C]sky is always [G]blue
and we [G]never kill the [D]pigs and the [G]cows never poo
and [G]everything's a[C]dorable and I know every[G]one
and we can [G]plant any[C]thing under this [G]never-setting sun
oh it [C]hasn't gotten old
and I hope it never [G]will
let me intro[C]duce you to my new home.
[D]Farm[G]ville

In the last few months I've become a millionaire
This is so much more exciting than playing solitaire
I've got an oddly-shaped house, that I couldn't fit inside
And animals that will never die
no matter how much I neglect them they're alive
It might not be real life, but I don't really mind
There's no other place where I'd prefer to spend my time than

[G]down on the [C]farm where the [C]sky is always [G]blue
and we [G]never kill the [D]pigs and the [G]cows never poo
and [G]everything's a[C]dorable and I know every[G]one
and we can [G]plant any[C]thing under this [G]never-setting sun
oh it [C]hasn't gotten old
and I hope it never [G]will

Good morning John, I wrote this song a while ago when Farmville was a little bit more culturally relevant. Let's just be honest, we've all got a lot of wilted crops out there. The good news is that the cows and the chickens and the pigs, they never die. No matter how much you neglect them, they're alive.

I just made a discovery that may change my life
While I was clicking through this new-fangled Facebook site
It's a place where I can live the life I've always dreamed
without really ever doing anything
which is good because I don't like doing things
Now my life isn't so important to me
since there's another place I'd much rather be

down on the farm where the sky is always blue
and we never kill the pigs and the cows never poo
and everything's adorable and I know everyone
and we can plant anything under this never-setting sun
oh it hasn't gotten old
and I hope it never will
let me introduce you to my new home.
Farmville

I drag my ragged ass to work, yeah I can barely lift my feet
I'm operating on about four hours' sleep
I was up all night growing food to feed the world
just me and an army of girls
friendless twelve year-old girls
The boss throws me a pile of work without so much as a hello
and suddenly I know exactly where I wanna go

down on the farm where the sky is always blue
and we never kill the pigs and the cows never poo
and everything's adorable and I know everyone
and we can plant anything under this never-setting sun
oh it hasn't gotten old
and I hope it never will
let me introduce you to my new home.
Farmville

In the last few months, well, I've become a millionaire
This is so much more fun than playing solitaire
I've got an oddly-shaped house, that I couldn't fit inside
And animals that will never die
no matter how much I neglect them they're alive
It might not be real life, but I don't really mind
There's no other place where I'd prefer to spend my time than

down on the farm where the sky is always blue
and we never kill the pigs and the cows don't poo
and everything's adorable and I know everyone
and we can plant anything under this never-setting sun
oh it hasn't gotten old
and I hope it never will
let me introduce you to my new home.
Farmville.

Thank you to everyone who helped me with this video, all the people who submitted photometronifications. It's this project that I'm working on, we're testing the beta, if you're following me on twitter you've got to find out about that.

Sorry for everyone where it didn't work, it's very much in beta, it doesn't work with the lesser known browsers, uhm, it's called Firefox. Yeah, that's embarrassing, but we're working on it. I've got some other plans for the software and it's gonna be pretty amazing.

Also, another thing that we're doing with this song is an actual releasing it as a single on iTunes. I've never done this before and I don't know if I'm ever gonna do it again, but I figured I was gonna do it this one time to see how it goes. And I had people sent me their barns so I could use it in the artwork for the digital single and I ended up using only one of those because someone actually submitted a farm in which they had written "NERDFIGHTERS" in their farms with their farmville stuff. So thank you to Abby for providing the basis for the artwork for the digital single. The link for purchase, of course, is in the doobly-doo. I hope you liked it and John, I will see you on Wednesday.
