As well as thye rhyme used to choose the chaser in games I remember this having verses which started something like
"In my little garden
Now promise you won't laugh
I haven't any flowers a
And I haven't any grass
But now I'm going to .......
............................
With a bit of sun and a bit of rain
there'll be a lovely row of
One potato, two potato, etc.

Other verses were about different vegetables.
Anyone fill in the gaps??

Found in a pdf file at The BBC's web site:

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.

One from my childhood

Although the BBC show the writers they don't mention the date so I have no idea which came first the song of the childrens game sort rhyme.
