A neighbor of mine in the villageA
Likes to tell how one springB
When she was a girl on the farm she didC
A childlike thingB
-
One day she asked her fatherD
To give her a garden plotE
To plant and tend and reap herselfF
And he said 'Why not '-
-
In casting about for a cornerD
He thought of an idle bitG
Of walled off ground where a shop had stoodH
And he said 'Just it '-
-
And he said 'That ought to make youI
An ideal one girl farmJ
And give you a chance to put some strengthK
On your slim jim arm '-
-
It was not enough of a gardenL
Her father said to plowM
So she had to work it all by handN
But she don't mind nowM
-
She wheeled the dung in a wheelbarrowO
Along a stretch of roadP
But she always ran away and leftQ
Her not nice loadP
-
And hid from anyone passingB
And then she begged the seedR
She says she thinks she planted oneL
Of all things but weedR
-
A hill each of potatoesS
Radishes lettuce peasT
Tomatoes beets beans pumpkins cornU
And even fruit treesT
-
And yes she has long mistrustedC
That a cider appleV
In bearing there today is hersW
Or at least may beX
-
Her crop was a miscellanyX
When all was said and doneL
A little bit of everythingB
A great deal of noneL
-
Now when she sees in the villageA
How village things goO
Just when it seems to come in rightY
She says 'I knowO
-
'It's as when I was a farmer '-
Oh never by way of adviceZ
And she never sins by telling the taleA2
To the same person twiceZ
