Oats and Beans and Barley

Oats and Beans and Barley

Oats and beans and barley grows
As you and I and everyone knows
You and I and everyone knows
Where oats and beans and barley grows

CHO: Oh, waiting for a partner
     Open the ring and take one in
     And kiss them when you get them in

First the farmer sows the seed
And then the farmer takes his ease
Stamps his foot and claps his hand
And turns around to view the land

Do you want a partner?
Do you want a partner?
For if you do, you must be true
And choose him very shortly

Now you're married, you must obey
You must be true to all you say
You must be kind and very good
And help your wife to chop the wood.

recorded by John and Tony on Mellow with Ale
