The Combine Harvester (The Wurzels)

I drove my tractor through your 'aystack last night,
(ohh ahh, ooh ahh)
I threw me pitchfork at your dog to be quiet;
(ohh ahh, ooh ahh)
Now something's tellin' me that you're avoidin' me,
(ohh ahh, ooh ahh)
Come on now darlin' you got something I need.

'Cause I've got a bran' new combine harvester
and I'll give you the key!
Come on now let's get together in perfect harmony;
I've got twenty acres, and you've got forty-three,
Now I've got a bran' new combine harvester
and I'll give you the key!

I'll stick by you, I'll give you all that you need,
(ohh ahh, ooh ahh)
We'll have twins and triplets, I'm a man built for speed;
(ohh ahh, ooh ahh)
And you know I love ya darlin' so give me your hand,
(ohh ahh, ooh ahh)
But the thing I want the most is all the acres of land!

'Cause I've got a bran' new combine harvester
and I'll give you the key!
Come on now let's get together in perfect harmony;
I've got twenty acres, and you've got forty-three,
Now I've got a bran' new combine harvester
and I'll give you the key!

For seven long years I've been alone in this place,
(ohh ahh, ooh ahh)
Pigs sleep in the kitchen, it's a proper disgrace;
(ohh ahh, ooh ahh)
Now if I cleaned it up would ya change yer mind,
(ohh ahh, ooh ahh)
I'll give up drinkin' scrumpy and that larder of lime.

'Cause I've got a bran' new combine harvester
and I'll give you the key!
Come on now let's get together in perfect harmony;
I've got twenty acres, and you've got forty-three,
Now I've got a bran' new combine harvester
and I'll give you the key!

Weren't we a grand couple at that last Wurzel dance,
I wore bran' new gators and me cor-de-roy pants;
(ohh ahh, ooh ahh)
In your new Sunday dress with yer perfume smellin' grand,
We had our photos took of us holdin' hands!

Now I've got a bran' new combine harvester
and I'll give you the key!
Now that we're both past our fifties, I think that you and me,
Should stop this gallivanting and will you marry me?
'Cause I've got a bran' new combine harvester
and I'll give you the key!

(Ahhhhh, you're a fine lookin' woman
And I can't wait to get me hands on yer land)
