Tractor, Faster, Pasture, Matter

Tractor, Faster, Pasture, Matter

What do these words have in common?  Give up?  Well they all rhyme with each other.  Apparently.  Say them over and over again a few times.  Isn’t it obvious?

As you may know, these come from the country song Big Green Tractor by Jason Aldean.  You get the feeling that Mr. Aldean got close to finding words that rhymed and then quit.  Not exactly an Alan Learner or Oscar Hammerstein endeavor.

How about these revisions? (my words in bold)

And I can take you for a ride on my big green tractor

We can go slow not  like Gary Busey the actor

Down through the woods where in 1985 I lost my favorite protractor

                                                     or

(Down through the woods where I buried  my building contractor)

As long as I’m with you it really don’t matter as long as you are wearing makeup by Max Factor

                                                                 or

(As long as I’m with you and we don’t live near the nuclear reactor)

Ah, now it rhymes the right way.  What do you think about that Mr. Aldean?

Hmm.  As they say in the NFL, “upon further review…..”

Maybe the song is better as originally written, with the pseudo rhyming words.  This rhyming stuff is harder than I thought.

Prove you read this.  Leave a comment.

Just my opinion.
