BARNYARD HOEDOWN

By Dana Cohenour © 2016


Last Saturday night, down on the farm
There was hootin’ and hollerin’, cause for alarm
I ran to the barn to take a look see
And find out what the fuss might be

The barn was shakin’ as I peeked in the door
Animals were dancin’, stompin’ the floor
Hay was flyin’, and what do you know?
The rooster was playin’ an old banjo!

Cows were in line, coupled in pairs
Swinging in circles, dancin’ in squares
The barn owl gave a hoot and holler…
Turns out he was a square dance caller! (Whooo knew?!)

CHORUS:
He said, “Whooo’s your partner? Do si do
Swing your partner, to and fro
Promenade right outta town
It’s a mooin’, whooin’, cockadoodledooin’ (mooin’, whooin’, cockadoodledooin’
Barnyard hoedown!” (Hoedown!)

The pigs and chickens joined the line
For poultry and swine, they danced just fine
Owl yelled, “Now, weave the ring!”
Everyone else said, “What’s that mean?”

The horse and donkey were kickin’ their hooves
Makin’ some pretty fancy moves
With a bray and a neigh, and a left sashay
They took a break for a bite of hay

CHORUS:
Owl yelled, “Whooo’s your partner? Do si do
Swing your partner, to and fro
Promenade right outta town
It’s a neighin’, brayin’, oinkin’ and a cluckin, mooin’, whooin’, cockadoodledooin’ barnyard
hoedown!” (Hoedown!)

The dog and the sheep jumped right in
With a whirl and a twirl and a wild spin
The duck and goose really let loose
Dancing on top of a giant moose (A moose?! A moose!)

CHORUS:
Owl yelled, “Whooo’s your partner? Do si do
Swing your partner, to and fro
Promenade right outta town
It’s a squawkin’, quackin’, barkin’ and a baaain’, neighin’, brayin’, oinkin’ and a cluckin, mooin’,
whooin’, cockadoodledooin’ barnyard hoedown!” (Hoedown!)

I was standing there watching this crazy fray
When the goose took a gander over my way
He squawked, “Who are you? Were you invited?
Well, come on in! We’d be delighted!”

CHORUS:
Owl yelled, “Whooo’s your partner? Do si do
Swing your partner, to and fro
Promenade right outta town
It’s a squakin’, quackin’, barkin’ and a baaain’, neighin’, brayin’, oinkin’ and a cluckin, mooin’,
whooin’, cockadoodledooin’ barnyard hoedown!” (Hoedown!)
