På förekommen anledning: Bill Andersson & Brad Paisley ”Too Country”

På begäran tyvärr inte tillgänglig som inbäddad video:

Too country,
What’s that?
Is it like too Republican,
Or too Democrat?
Is it too far to the left?
Or too far to the right?
Too straight down the middle?
Too black, too white?

Are the biscuits too fluffy?
Is the chicken too fried?
Is the gravy too thick?
Are the peas too black-eyed?
Is the iced tea too sweet?
Does it have too much tang?
Are there too many lemons
In mama’s lemon meringue?

Too country.
Well now, what’s that?
Is it too many pearls of wisdom
Under grandpa’s old hat?
Is it just too old fashioned?
Or just too antique?
Is the question too strong?
Or is the answer too weak?

Are the roses too red?
Is the sunshine too bright?
Are there too many stars
In the heavens at night?
Are there too many fish
That still jump in the stream?
Is the blue sky too blue?
Is the clean air too clean?

Is the grace too amazing?
Is the steeple too tall?
Are there too many ”yes sir”‘s,
”Yes ma’am”‘s, and ”how’re y’all”‘s?
Is the message too real,
Too close to the bone?
Do the fiddle and steel
Remind you too much of home?

Is honest and true just not in demand?
Too country.
Too country?
Too country.

I don’t understand.
I don’t either, son.
