.

This world is big and wild and half insane

Take me where real animals are playing

Just a dirty old shack

Where the hound dogs bark

That we called our home

I want to be back there

Among the cats and dogs

And the pigs and the goats

On Animal Farm

My animal home

On Animal Farm

My animal home

.

While I lay my head upon my pillow

Little girl, come play beneath my window

Though she's far from home

She is free from harm

And she need not fear

She is by my side

And the sky is wide

So let the sun shine bright

On Animal Farm

My animal home

On Animal Farm

My animal home

.

Girl, It's a hard, hard world, if it gets you down

Dreams often fade and die in a bad, bad world

I'll take you where real animals are playing

And people are real people not just playing

It's a quiet, quiet life

By a dirty old shack

That we called our home

I want to be back there

Among the cats and dogs

And the pigs and the goats

On Animal Farm

My animal home

On Animal Farm

My animal home

On Animal Farm

Animal Farm
