My Bubba – Knitting – Lyrics:
On a farm In a barn Feeling lonely But I got some yarn Ooh yeah Got the yarn Got the yarn I'm gonna do some knitting In a boat Slit my throat Feeling bad But I still got somma that Ya-ya-yarn Ooh got the yarn and I'm gonna do some knitting Knit knit knit knit knit I need to do some knitting
