Loretta Lynn

Loretta Lynn (née Webb; born on April 14, 1932) is an American country-music singer-songwriter and author. Born in Butcher Hollow, near Paintsville, Kentucky, USA, to a coal-miner father. At the age of 14 she married, and soon she became pregnant. She moved to Washington state with her husband, Oliver Vanetta Lynn, Jr. (1926–1996), nicknamed "Doo". Their marriage was tumultuous; he had affairs, and she was headstrong; their life together helped to inspire her music. more »

The sun comes up and brings the dawn to a new day
The kids run out to play the games like kids all play
To a child the world is milk and honey
A dime is a lot of candy money
Oh, ain't it funny, now, ain't it funny?

Running barefoot through the fields in the rain
Chasin' pretty butterflies in the lane
The world's a mess and they wonder why
Oh, what a pretty blue, blue sky
Gee, ain't it funny, now, ain't it funny?

The kids all say grown ups are strange and aren't they?
They teach their kids not to do as I do but as I say
They cry for peace and then make war
And wonder what they're fighting for
Oh, ain't it funny, now, ain't it funny?
Oh, gee ain't it funny, now, ain't it funny?
