Pumpkin seeds

One day I found two pumpkin seeds.
I planted one and pulled the weeds.
It sprouted roots and a big, long vine.
A pumpkin grew; I called it mine.
The pumpkin was quite round and fat.
(I really am quite proud of that.)
But there is something I'll admit
That has me worried just a bit.
I ate the other seed, you see.
Now will it grow inside of me?

(I'm so relieved since I have found
That pumpkins only grow in the ground!)

Songs:

‘Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow’

Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,
Can you or I or anyone know
How oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?
Verse 1:
First the farmer sows his seed,
Stands erect and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,
Can you or I or anyone know
How oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?
Verse 2:
Next the farmer waters the seed,
Stands erect and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
And turns around to view his lands.
Chorus:
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,
Can you or I or anyone know
How oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?
Verse 3:
Next the farmer hoes the weeds,
Stands erect and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
And turns around to view his lands.
Chorus:
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,
Can you or I or anyone know
How oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?
Verse 4:
Last the farmer harvests his seed,
Stands erect and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
And turns around to view his lands.
Chorus:
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow,
Can you or I or anyone know
How oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?

‘Dingle Dangle Scarecrow’.

When all the cows were sleeping
and the sun had gone to bed,
Up jumped the scarecrow
and this is what he said,

Chorus
“I’m a dingle dangle scarecrow
with a flippy floppy hat,
I can shake my hands like this
and shake my feet like that.”
When all the hens were roosting
and the moon behind the cloud
Up jumped the scarecrow
and shouted very loud,

Chorus
“I’m a dingle dangle scarecrow
with a flippy floppy hat,
I can shake my hands like this
and shake my feet like that.”

When the dogs were in the kennel
and the doves were in the loft
Up jumped the scarecrow
and whispered very soft,

Chorus
“I’m a dingle dangle scarecrow
with a flippy floppy hat,
I can shake my hands like this
and shake my feet like that.”
