The Beet (Greens) Go On





The beets grow on, the beets grow on!
The greens we grind in rhythm to our cud.
La di la di dee, la di la di da




Turnip greens were once the rage, uh-huh
Summer has turned the page, uh-huh
Beet greens are now the thing, uh-huh
Chomping greens we eat like a king, un-huh





The beets grow on, the beets grow on!
The greens we grind in rhythm to our cud.
La di la di dee, la di la di da




The garden is our super mart, uh-huh
When it is gone it breaks our hearts, uh-huh
The male person marches off for beets, uh-huh
We love it when we get a treat, uh-huh




The beets grow on, the beets grow on!
The greens we grind in rhythm to our cud.
La di la di dee, la di la di da*

  5. Hahahah, I think Sonny would love that!! :)

    I have a question though. I've been following your blog, I know AbbyGoat and Priscilla and Buster Brown. But I do not know the name of the first goat-- and could you tell me whats up with his most interesting hair?

  6. Goodness the publicist writes songs. That is terrific. Luke and Buster sure are getting along pretty good. How nice is that. Or at least it looks like they are getting along. Have a wonderful day.
