Sing it! You know the tune!
But Puhleez, speed up the tempo!
(or you'll never harvest a crop!)
If I don't have the rhythm right, please forgive me. I tried!

(1)

I've been working in the garden  all the livelong day.
I've got sunburn and a backache  that just won't go away.
Don't you hear the crows a-cawing?   Rise up so early in the morn!
Don't you hear the gardener shouting,  "Get OUT of my corn!

Veggies, won't you grow, 
                      Veggies, won't you grow, 
                                                           Veggies, won't you grow for me-e-e?Veggies, won't you grow,
                          Veggies, won't you grow,
                                                                Veggies, won't you grow for me?


Cauliflower, cabbage, zucchini, 
                                       I-can hardly wait-to see them sprou-ou-ou-out!
Cucumbers, asparagus, celery,  
                                                       hope the weeds don't choke them out!

Dig, plant, water and hoe, Dig, plant, water and ho-o-o-oe!
Dig, plant, water and hoe,  waitin' for my seeds to grow!

Early corn, beans, brocc'li, tomatoes,

Dig, plant, water and hoe, Dig, plant, water and ho-o-o-oe!
Dig, plant, water and hoe,  waitin' for my seeds to grow!

Hi Connie:

It is so much fun to read this. I had a tune going through my head while reading this, but not sure where the tune had originated from. Good work all over! Enjoyed this very much!

Love it, matter a fact doing some canning tonight...about sick of it, glad this is the last. I really like the poem, I may borrow it to read to my first grade class in the spring when we study the life cycle of a plant....great work.
Blessings,
