"Future Farmers Of America"
===========================================
album _Ecstasy_
(Lou Reed, 2000)

written by Lou Reed

* written for the play _Time Rocker_ (1996)
===========================================


        Born on a farm in a transatlantic moonlight
        split like a cord of wood my family broke up
        Sold like a piece of steer, a piece of meat, a cow
        a breathing piece of shit

        Picked for my age, for my strength and make up
        called for I was tall, I was big, I could hold up
        A tree or a piece of steel I could do
        what my fat owner can't

        Ah, future farmers of America
        future farmers of America
        Future farmers of America

        Ah
        I'm always watching the way his wife looks me over
        I have a sex twice as big as her husband's
        If I wasn't so large, so strong, so pale
        I'd disappear under a bush

        Colorless men and ladies of the world unite
        kill your master with one cut of your knife
        Kill them during sex, kill them during talk
        kill them whenever you can

        Future farmers of America
        future farmers of America
        Future farmers of America

        These -
        - stupid black owners are foreigners to affairs of the heart
        look at me, I'll never own land that I work on
        Every one of us here shares a surname
        this father must die

        I was born on the dark cusp of twilight
        my father was dark, my mother was light
        Look at me, I'm strong
        I could crush him in my fist

        Ah
        I could crush him in my
        I could crush him in my
        I could crush him in my fist

        I could crush him in my
        I could crush him in my
        I could crush him in my fist

        Future farmers of America
        I could crush him in my fist
        Future farmers of America
        I could crush him in my fist
        Future farmers of America
        I could crush him in my fist

"Future Farmers Of America"
==============================================
from the play _Time Rocker_
(Robert Wilson/Darryl Pinckney/Lou Reed, 1996)

performed by actors, German musicians

Jun 11, 1996
Thalia Theater, Hamburg, Germany
(pre-premiere)
==============================================


        Born on a farm in a transatlantic moonlight
        split like a cord of wood my family broke up
        Sold like a piece of steer, a piece of meat, a cow
        a breathing piece of shit

        Picked for my age, for my strength and make up
        called for I was tall, I was big, I could hold up
        A tree or a piece of steel I could do
        what my fat owner can't

        Future farmers of America
        future farmers of America
        Future farmers of America

        Always watching the way his wife looks me over
        I have a sex twice as big as her husband's
        If I wasn't so large, so strong, so pale
        I'd disappear under a bush

        Colorless men and ladies of the world unite
        kill your master with one cut of your knife
        Kill them during sex, kill them during talk
        kill them whenever you can

        Future farmers of America
        future farmers of America
        Future farmers of America

        These stupid black owners
        are foreigners to affairs of the heart
        look at me, I'll never own land that I work on
        Every one of us here shares a surname
        this father must die

        I was born on the dark cusp of twilight
        my father was dark, my mother was light
        Look at me, I'm strong
        I could crush him in my fist

        I could crush him in my
        I could crush him in my

They are the exact words he sings,
not just lyrics I copied from the booklet.



Future farmers of America
--------------------------

Born on a farm in a transatlantic moonlight
Split like a cord of wood my family broke up
Sold like a piece of steer a piece of meat a cow
A breathing piece of shit

They call for my age for my strength and makeup
Called for: I was tall, I was big, I could hold up
A tree or a piece of steel I could do
What my fat owner can't

Oh future farmers of America
Future farmers of America
Future farmers of America

Aah, I'm always watching the way his wife looks me over
I have a sex twice as big as her husband's
If I wasn't so large, so strong, so pale
I'd disappear under a bush

Colorless men and ladies of the world unite
Kill your master with one cut of your knife
Kill them during sex, kill them during talk
Kill them whenever you can

Future farmers of America
Future farmers of America
Future farmers of America

These stupid black owners are foreigners
to affairs of the heart
Look at me! I'll never own land that I work on!
Every one of us here shares a surname
This father must die

I was born on the dark cusp of twilight
My father was dark my mother was light
Look at me I'm strong
I could crush him in my fist

Aah,I could crush him in my
I could crush him in my
I could crush him in my fist
I could crush him in my
I could crush him in my
I could crush him in my fist
Future farmers of America
I could crush him in my fist
Future farmers of America
I could crush him in my fist
Future farmers of America
I could crush him in my fist
