Combine Harvester Song Lyrics- The Wurzels


The Combine Harvester song was a number one hit for The Wurzels in 1976. It is a parody of Melanie Safka’s song called Brand New Key.

I drove my tractor through your
haystack last night, oh ah, oh ah,
I threw me pitch fork at your dog
to keep quiet, oh ah, oh ah,
Now something’s telling me, that
you’m avoiding me, oh ah, oh ah,
come on now darling you got
something I need.

Coz I got a brand new combine
harvester and I’ll give you the key,
come on now lets get together
in perfect harmony,
I got 20 acres and you got 43,
now I got a brand new combine harvester
and I’ll give you the key.

She might well laugh.

I’ll stick by you and give you
all that you need, oh ah, oh ah,
we’ll have twins and triplets
I’m a man built for speed, oh ah, oh ah,
and you know I’ll love you darling
so give me your hand, oh ah, oh ah,
oh thing I want the most is all that
acres of land.

Coz I got a brand new combine
harvester and I’ll give you the key,
come on now lets get together
in perfect harmony,
I got 20 acres and you got 43,
now I got a brand new combine harvester
and I’ll give you the key.

Ooaah she’s a lovely bit of stuff an’ all.

For seven long years I’ve been
alone in this place, oh ah, oh ah,
pigs sleep in the kitchen
it’s a proper disgrace, oh ah, oh ah,
now if I cleaned it up would you
change your mind, oh ah, oh ah,
I’ll give up drinking scrumpy
and that lager and lime.

Coz I got a brand new combine
harvester and I’ll give you the key,
come on now lets get together
in perfect harmony,
I got 20 acres and you got 43,
now I got a brand new combine harvester
and I’ll give you the key.

Who loves u baby?

Weren’t we grand couple at
that last wurzel dance,
I wore brand new gaters and me
corderoy pants, ha ha,
in your new sunday dress
with your perfume smelling grand
we had our photos tooken us
holding hands.

Now I got a brand new combine
harvester and I’ll give you the key,
now that we both past our 50’s I think that
you and me, should stop this galavanting
and will you marry me,
coz I got a brand new combine harvester
and I’ll give you the key.

Arr your a fine looking woman and I can’t
wait to get me hands on your land.
