Come the Fairgrounds

The local county fair is opening tomorrow. I have to say I'm excited and we always have a blast at the fair. Either way this popped into my head and I thought I would share it...





Come to the Fairgrounds
Spend your money, spend your money
Come to the fairgrounds tonight

Come to the fairgrounds
Eat pastas, cheesecake, and churros
Eat hot dogs corndogs, and cinnamon rolls
Walk into the fairgrounds but waddle on home

Come to the fairgrounds
Ten dollars for parking and five for a ride
Twenty-Five for a Ginsu knife, Thirty-Six for two
Come flush to the fairgrounds but leave the place flushed

Come to the fairgrounds
See the cows, and the chickens
See the sheep, horses, rabbits and pigs
Come clean to the fairgrounds, leave smelling like dung

Come to the fairgrounds
We’ve all the nice people
Meet carnies, hommies, pickpockets and bums
Come alone to the fairgrounds and find some new friends

Come to the Fairgrounds
Spend your money, spend your money
Come to the fairgrounds tonight

kludge said...

Me too.

I can spend hours in the vendors pavilion. It's like a warehouse for live informercials!

Great for blog ideas. I hope they have those one outdoor free standing hammock type chairs...that was a mouthful

Um, I'm confused. This post showed up on my rss reader but I know you turned it off. What am I missing?

kludge said...

I felt evil for turning it off, so I put it back on.

Sorry for the strong arming...but hey that was a good post!

SJ said...

The fair sounds fun - wish we could be there!

kludge said...

I runs two weeks, I'm sure we will all go as a group. It's certainly worth the ticket.

Gotta say, not a huge fair guy. I wouldn't say that I don't like the fair, but I just can't get that excited about it. I do enjoy going with the wife and/or friends, but I feel I have not caught on to whatever it is that brings the enthusiasm out of you hitched-to-Riley-women types.

Patricia LOVES the fair... It's hard not to get a little bit excited.

SJ said...

I love the fair too! I am with Patricia!

How can you not like free clo icecream? It's so worth the money to park, the admission price and waiting in line in the hot sun so you can say you got a free scoop of icecream. And then the ladies know what I'm talking about with those free hand washings from the glicerine mink oil soap. But they only wash one hand and then the other one feels dirtier and nastier then it ever has before. And all the free samples of stuff, I love free stuff!

Emberli-

Your sincerity isn't comming through... I'm not sure your honest or not. Either way... no free cones when we went! what a jip!
