Lyrics : Everything’s Okay

Now I went to the country
Just the other day
To see my uncle Bill
And pass some time away
I asked how'd he'd been
Since last I passed his way
And he rubbed his chin
And that's what he had to say

He said, my wife's been sick
My youngins too
And I'm darn near down
With the instamatic flu
The cows gone dry
And my hens won't lay
But we're still living
Everything's okay

He said the hogs took the cholera
And they've all done died
The bees got mad
And they left the hive
The weevils got the corn
And the rain got the hay
But we're still living
So everything's okay
