Lyrics

I love you a bushel and peck
A bushel and peck and a hug around the neck
A hug around the neck and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap and I'm talking in my sleep
About you, about you.

Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your pretty neck, I do
Doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle oo
I love you a bushel and peck
A bushel and peck though you make my heart a wreck
Make my heart a wreck and you make my life a mess
Make my life a mess, yes
A mess of happiness
About you, about you.

Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your pretty neck, I do
Doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle oo
I love you a bushel and peck
A bushel and peck and it beats me all to heck
Beats me all to heck and I'll never tend the farm
Never tend the farm when I wanna keep my arm
About you, about you.

Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your pretty neck, I do
Doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle oo.

Information About A Bushel And A Peck

A Bushel and a Peck was originally written by Frank Loessner in 1950 and it was never expected to get as much popularity as it did.

It was first featured in the musical Guys and Dolls. It was featured in the play version and not the film version.

It rose to popularity when Perry Como and Betty Hutton released their version of it in 1950 and it went to the Billboard Charts and number 6.

Doris Day also recorded a version of the song and the popularity again rose.

The writers of the musical moved it from the second act to the first act because it was so popular.

This song was also made popular when it was recorded by the Andrew's Sisters and when it was featured on Veggie Tales.

This song is a good way to teach children about love. Parents and grandparents have been singing it to their children for many years and it is sweet and fun for them to sing.

This song can also be used to teach children about measurements, for example, what a bushel and a peck are.
