THE POTATOES THEY GROW SMALL OVER THERE.
Copyright. 1871, by White, Smith & Perry.
Arranged by Harry Birch.

oh! potatoes they grow small over there;
Oh! potatoes they grow small over there;
Oh! potatoes they grow small, 'cause they plant 'em in the fall,
And then eats 'em tops and all, over there.

oh! the candles they are small over there;
Oh! the candles they were small over there:
Oh the candles they were small, for they dips 'em lean and tall,
And then burns 'em sticks and all, over there.

Oh! I wish I was a geese, all forlorn;
Oh! I wish I was a geese, all forlorn;
Oh! I wish I was a geese, 'cause they lives and dies in peace.
And accumulates much grease eating corn.

Oh! they had a nice clam pie over there;
Oh! they had a nice clam pie over there;
Oh! they had a nice clam pie, and the crust was made of rye,
You must eat it or must die, over there.
