How Ya Gonna Keep ‘em Down On The Farm

How ya gonna keep ‘em down on the farm
After they’ve seen Paree’
How ya gonna keep ‘em away from Broadway
Jazzin around and paintin’ the town
How ya gonna keep ‘em away from harm, that’s a mystery
They’ll never want to see a rake or plow
And who the deuce can parleyvous a cow?
How ya gonna keep ‘em down on the farm
After they’ve seen Paree’

One way was to get a subscription to The Rural New Yorker, a weekly founded in 1841 that was published by the Rural Publishing Co. The magazine continued through the middle of the 20th century. This edition is from 1916 but an extensive archive from its early run can be found here.
