Here it is, a kind of follow-up on "The Elements Song" by Tom Lehrer: Ladies and gentlemen, written by LaserDuck, I bring you... THE COUNTRY SONG! It is to be sung to the tune of "I am the very Model of a Modern Major-general" (To the tune of "Major-General") by Gilbert and Sullivan. Hope you'll enjoy it!

Some places the text doesn't fit perfectly, as the correct pronounciation of the words dictates otherwise than the beat markings. For the trained singer and actor, however, this shouldn't be a problem: just half-talk those places or ignore the beatmarkings for a while. Of course it would be better if the text fit perfectly, but it's either impossible or like a 867396730-hexagonal puzzle. Ideas on improvement of the song are welcome!

To avoid any future misunderstandings: I wrote this song myself, so I am not breaking any copyright laws or anything.
