Oats, Peas, Beans, and Barley Grow

Song Video

Lyrics

Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow
Do you, or I, or anyone know
How oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?

First the farmer plants the seed
Stands up tall and takes his ease
Stamps his feet and claps his hands
And turns around to view the land

Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow
Do you, or I, or anyone know
How oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?

Then the farmer waters the ground
Watches the sun shine all around
Stamps his feet and claps his hands
And turns around to view the land

Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow
Do you, or I, or anyone know
How oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?

After weeks of sun and air
The farmer picks the crops right there
Stamps his feet and claps his hands
And turns around to view the land

Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow
Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow
Do you, or I, or anyone know
How oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?
