Our Name

THE VEGETABLE SONG
(Music & Lyrics by Bob Mitchell)

(Spoken)
Ladies and gentleman, as far as I know there’s never been a love song written for those courageous
hard working tillers of the soil that feed our Nation. To those down to earth beings this song is
dedicated.

I’ve a got a garden in my heart
That Mushrooms with love
Whenever you Turnip

So nothing maters to me
If it’s Okra with you
Lettuce never Squash our love

And how I Radish
The thought of Beans with you
And how my Artichoke skips a beet

Nothing maters to me
If it’s Okra with you
Lettuce never Squash our love

(Instrumental section)

(Spoken)
It’s just an old fashioned Vegetable Song, folks, comin’ down in two beet harmony…

It takes Parsley you and Parsley me
To make Asparagus
So if Cucumber to me my Melon Collard baby
I’ll Carrot your heart

And how I’ll Radish
The thought of beans with you
And how my Artichoke skips a beet

Nothing Maters to me
If it’s Okra with you
Lettuce never Squash our love
Lettuce never Squash our love
