ONE POTATO, TWO POTATO
Words, Peter Charlton. Music, Paul Reade.

In my little garden, now promise you won't laugh,
I haven't any flowers and I haven't any grass,
But now I'm going to dig and plant and soon I'll have a show,
With a bit of sun and a bit of rain there'll be a lovely row
Of

CHORUS: One potato, two potato, three potato, four,
Five potato, six potato, seven potato, more.
One potato, two potato, three potato, four,
Five potato, six potato, seven potato, more.

I'm going to grow so many things, I'll surely never starve:
Cabbages and cauliflowers. I won't do things by halves.
I'll plant a row of runner beans. They'll grow so very high,
With a bit of sun and a bit of rain, they'll reach up to the sky. CHORUS.

So if you're ever down my way, do please drop in for tea.
We'll have lettuces and radishes. they'll all be grown by me.
Tomatoes too, and cucumbers. Oh, what a lovely spread!
And if you do not like that, you can always have instead: CHORUS.
