"Dairy Farmboy" parody song

I came up with some dairy-themed lyrics set to the tune of "Rhinestone Cowboy" several months ago. I never did share them, though, because my singing of the song was awful (even by my low standards). However, I've now come to the realization that you actually have to have credibility before you can worry about losing it, so I broke out the old FlipCam this morning and put together something I hope won't make your ears bleed too badly. Try your best to enjoy the video below, but make sure you read my DirecTV-esque disclaimer first:

When you live on a dairy farm, you milk cows.
When you milk cows, you get up early every morning.
When you get up early every morning, you become sleep deprived.
When you become sleep deprived, your judgement suffers.
When your judgment suffers, you start thinking you can sing like Glen Campbell.
Don't start thinking you can sing like Glen Campbell.

Thanks for helping me to have a #Dairy good day. You made me smile - - not laugh as I related to what one does when milking cows - singing, etc. Your milking parlor is such an improvement over the stanchion barn I once milked in; so much better for the human back. genojoan@comcast.net

Love your singing! I think your "girls" do too! I bet they were up production this morning with that great song. Thanks for what you do!

way to go! I'm waiting for your next version with a few shots of you doing some fieldwork, hugging your wife at sunset, any number of shots while you walk thru your farm and visit with your cows. Your message at the end of your video is really nice and sincere, too.
We farmers work hard, enjoy our work and our animals, and we take good care of our animals. Quality is important to us.
From Alabama to Wisconsin, from New York to California, everybody, take time to get to know your local dairy producer and how dedicated he or she is to animal husbandry, environmental stewardship, and marketing quality milk and meat!
