Hello, I'm Guy.
I love music. Do you?
It just makes me feel really happy.
Farmer Joe in tonight's bedtime story plays music to
make his animals happy.
The story's called Farmer Joe And The Music Show
and it's by Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees.
Down on the farm of poor old Joe,
the hens won't lay and the crops won't grow.
The cows won't graze and the pigs won't feed
and Joe just can't think what they need.
Suddenly Joe has a bright idea.
Music has the power to cheer.
He puts on his hat and yells, "Yee-haa!"
Then he starts to pluck on his old guitar.
Pluck-pluck, plick-plick, diddle-aye-oh.
Listen to the picking of Farmer Joe.
The hens start flapping and clucking away.
They all sit down and start to lay.
Along the trail comes frisky Fox.
He pulls out a fiddle from the battered old box.
He tunes the strings and he lifts the bow,
then he fiddles to the picking of Farmer Joe.
Pluck-pluck, plick-plick, yiddle-yiddle-yiddle,
Joe on guitar and Fox on the fiddle, playing it nifty, playing it neat
till the pigs start scoffing to the music's beat.
Out of a burrow popped two big ears.
Rabbit just loves that stuff she hears.
She hops from a hole and starts to play on a concertina right away.
Skiddle-dee-fiddle and old guitar.
The crops like the music, my-oh-my.
Look at them stretching up to the sky.
Now what's that rumbling, grumbling sound?
Something big is stumbling round.
Soon we'll see it face to face.
Wow, it's a bear with a double bass!
Doom-doom-doo and a woo-woo-wum,
Bear's bass booms with a deep low thrum.
The bass makes a buzz and the day looks sunny
so out come the bees humming, "Let's make honey!"
Joe's on guitar with Fox on the fiddle.
Rabbit's concertina fits in the middle.
The bees go buzz as they hum around
and Bear's bass booms as he stomps on the ground.
Bull wakes up, what's this he hears?
"Herd," he bellow, "Now lift your ears."
The cows start mooing as the music plays,
then they click their hoofs as they bend to graze.
The creatures caper,
look at them go to the thrill of the hillbilly music show.
They jump and jive, they leap and bound,
they love the rhythm of the country sound,
but now it's hot and the sun rides high
and the heat beats down from the big blue sky.
What will they do now? What do you think?
Sprawl in the shade with a nice cool drink,
and Farmer Joe can smile and strum and say,
"Just let those sweet tunes come. No need to mope and moan around.
"We've found the power of music sound.
"If the pigs won't feed and the hens won't lay,
"I'll get my little old band to play."
He thanks his friends for the good they've done,
then they play some more now just for fun.
So down on the farm of clever old Joe,
the hens all lay and the crops all grow.
The cows all graze and the pigs all feed
as Joe knows just the thing they need.
That story was called Farmer Joe And The Music Show.
I'd love to visit his farm, wouldn't you?
It must be the happiest farm in the whole world.
I hope you have happy dreams.
I'll see you soon for another bedtime story.
