The Farmer Has a Dell

On the farmer with a Dell,
Obama cast his spell,
Hi-ho, Mitt did show,
He couldn't ring the bell.

The lesbian takes a wife,
She risks domestic strife,
Hi-ho, a scandal-o,
No gay should have a life.

The couple has a child,
Gay couple is reviled,
Hi-ho, no marriage-o,
Matrimony can't be defiled.

The child starts to nurse,
Now, what could be worse,
Hi-ho, the consequences-o,
The child must bear a curse.

The nurse takes the vow,
The household takes a bow,
Hi-ho, the outrage-o,
And society has a cow.
