Oats Peas Beans And Barley Grow Nursery Rhyme Lyrics

 

Description:

“Oats Peas Beans and Barley Grow” (usually sung as “Oats and Beans and Barley Grow”) is a traditional British and American folk song, 1380 in the Roud Folk Song Index.The tune normally used goes by the name “Baltimore” and appears in Joshua Cushing’s book “The Fifer’s Companion” (1790). The sleevenotes to “The Wild Mountain Thyme” claim that the tune was written by John Playford (1650). According to Alice Bertha Gomme’s book “The Traditional Games of England, Scotland and Ireland” (1894), this is a “play song”, in which children perform actions with the song, standing in a ring. In “Notes and Queries” 7th series, number xii (c 1870) it is discussed, but the Columbia State University website claims that the earliest known version of the words is dated 1898 (Gomme).

 

Lyrics to “Oats Peas Beans and Barley Grow”

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

First the farmer sows his seed,
Stands erect and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
And turns around to view his lands.

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

Next the farmer waters the seed,
Stands erect and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
And turns around to view his lands.

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

Next the farmer hoes the weeds,
Stands erect and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
And turns around to view his lands.

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