Gangnam Style Parody- (The farmers way)

South Korean rapper Psy’s, Gangnam Style has become the most-watched YouTube video of all time with more than 885m views.

There have been so many parody songs of this single released on 15th July 2012 but the one that got my eye this morning is Farmer style (Gangnam style), A parody music video by The Peterson Farm Bros (Greg, Nathan, and Kendal Peterson) that promotes agriculture!

Here are the lyrics to the Parody

We are the Peterson Farm Bros, and we’re farming and we grow it
We love agriculture, and we want the world to know it
Farming is a way of life with many different flavors
Being stewards of the gifts God gave us

Out here on the farm,
We’re running green John Deere Tractors
Out here on the farm,
We work in many weather factors
Out here on the farm,
We’re working hard to raise your food
Out here on the farm. On the family farm.

Agriculture, is so important to me, (and should be to you) HAY!
It feeds the world and will never ever cease to be, We need to eat!
We all need farmers to provide us with our food, food, food, food!

Workin’ farmer style.
Farmer Style
Work, work, work, work, working farmer style

Haaaaaaay, for my cattle
Work, work, work, work, working farmer style
Haaaaaaay, from the field
Work, work, work, work

Farmers are working harder than you might imagine
But that is just because we have a job that is our passion
We will work sunup to sundown time and time again
As if working for the Lord and not for men

Out here on the farm
We get away from lights of cities
Out here on the farm
The countryside is nice and pretty
Out here on the farm.
We work together as a family.
Out here on the farm. On the family farm.

Agriculture, is so important to me, (and should be to you) HEY!
It feeds the world and will never ever cease to be, We need to eat!
We all need farmers to provide us with our food, food, food, food!

Workin’ farmer style

Hay, hay, hay, hay
Is what we feed our cattle
So they grow big and strong
And then become the food that keeps us living nice and long.
Our crops like corn and wheat
Help make diets complete
Without the farmers working
We would all be starving
You know what I’m saying?

Workin’ farmer style

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, thank the farmers!
Hey, for your food!

COP18/CMP8: Young People Tell Climate Negotiators That It’s also about Their Future

While their numbers and even voices may not be as pronounced at the UN climate negotiations here in Doha, the simple presence of young people at the talks is a reminder to the negotiators that it’s not just about the energy and economic security, but also about generations to come.

While different countries and same interest blocks protectively fight for their bargain, the youths here are not interested on who takes what, all they are watching for is whether the outcome of these talks will safeguard the rights of future generations.

“All we are here for is to demand for is inter-generational equity. We want these delegates to know that it’s out future they are bargaining with” said Obiake Michael, a youth who has traveled to Doha as part of the African observer team with the United Nations.

“Whatever agreement they will reach here is a cheque that will be cashed by either us or our children and all the young people across the world”.
