I always sing "I fight for my meals."  However, the next line is "I don't
need to fight; to prove I'm right."  You wouldn't expect the same word
repeated like that.  Plus, listen to how differently Roger sings the words.
Maybe it *is* "farm"!!!  "I farm for my meals; I get my back into my
living."  It makes sense.

Listening to Pete's demo right now and it's not much help.
