Well, the lyrics, anyway. Recording it would be a bit too much effort for me at this point, sadly.

The backstory is, I idly came up with the first verse while falling asleep, and as soon as I finished the fourth line, the inevitable first line of the chorus struck me like a bolt of lightning, and I immediately had to go write the whole thing down.

*Ahem.*



Set the stage at the start - prehistory,
Age one to the likes of you and me.
We draw two cards then we meld alpabetically,
I go first, ‘cause I played Archery - wait, what?

[CHORUS]
Agriculture, it’s unstoppable!
Cultivated grains, they’re so unfair.
Irrigation, smash your face in,
Plow that field until it’s bare.
With my wheat I will defeat you,
While my peeps get lots to eat, foo’,
With my sickles I will reap you anywhere.

So you’re first, that’s fine, you lose half a turn
Gonna Metalwork myself, hope I don’t get burned,
But now you draw and I get stuck with all that crap that you returned,
You claim the one, bloody hell, kids, what did we learn?

[CHORUS]
Agriculture, it’s unstoppable!
Cultivated grains, they’re so unfair.
Irrigation, smash your face in,
Plow that field until it’s bare.
With my wheat I will defeat you,
While my peeps get lots to eat, foo’,
With my sickles I will reap you anywhere.

Well OK, screw achievements, max bulbs are the way.
I teched my way to age 8, got a lot of crap splayed.
Educate to age 10, what’s that you say?
My Empiricism’s got it for me on my next play. Oh damn...

[CHORUS]
Agriculture, it’s unstoppable!
Cultivated grains, they’re so unfair.
Irrigation, smash your face in,
Plow that field until it’s bare.
With my wheat I will defeat you,
While my peeps get lots to eat, foo’,
With my sickles I will reap you anywhere.


In case you were unaware, the first chorus line (and presumably, the song title) was inspired by this thread, whose name made quite an impression on me.
