Description
I stole a bean from Rebsie's garden and she publicly reprimanded me - Mando helped with a few veggy jokes and Joanna inspired a verse too. Many thanks and much gratitude to my long time chum Rebsie and my now time chums at Macjams x

And - special thanks to rebs for letting me over to hers and playing gb with me.

Lyrics
I’m crazy ‘bout my lover Spud –
I met him hanging out in the mud.
I knew he was the one for me
He earned a marvellous celery
He’s my every wish – a real ra-dish

I wanna take a ride in his Courgette
The one he drove the night that we met.
I’ll wear a bikini when he drives that mean zucchini
Let-uce go – my sweet potato.

I ache to fall in love with a swede,
He’d be class, bet yer arse and not a weed!
My heart jumps with a shock
Coz he makes it reel and rock-
Et over and I’m in clover!

I hope that I’m not makin’ a fuss
Had some thoughts about asparag-us
When those veggies treat you mean,
Tell them all “It’s auber – Gene”.

We’ve bean and gone and done it for fun.
Pea, leek, onion

I’ve bean and gone and done it again
Strung up about a runner named Ben.
I once danced to his beetroot
But now it’s time to shoot
I’m leavin’ the room – there ain’t no legume.

Wow, more veggie puns than I could shake my rake at,
cool! Fun twangy bed to grow this song from... it seemed
like a slightly dirty ditty, but you and Rebsie seem rather
earthy, and probably go together like two peas in a pod.
Welcome to the addictive world ofMacJams and
GarageBand! I look forward to hearing more of your
Nanny Ogg-like humor here... Glad you two are across
the pond, I swear you two and my wife would be out in the
garden all the time giggling over humorously shaped
vegetables.
ttfn,
Drakonis

It's a tossup between that and the hedgehog song :-) You'll have to e-mail
me sometime about the play productions, that sounds fun! Yah, we've read
ALL the Pratchett books to eachother, and have started over while we wait for
the next one. Say hi to Rebsie, and eat one of her fresh peas for me, while
she's not looking. Anyway, fun song and smirky lyrics, I liked it... will play it
for wifey tonight.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Well chilled
Ewww ... that's the last time I'm having peas round at
your house.

Seriously though, it's a pleasure to be involved in
your rediscovery of your music, even if I only sat
there and pressed the record button. You done well,
gal!

Love the sound of the guitar
Very primitive sound, very old folk feel, especially on the
nylon string guitar. And an incredibly clever, funny piece.
As a vegetable lover, so to speak, I really dug this song.

caroline, this is absolutely GREAT! Your voice has a
wonderful husky quality, very cool and unique.

Very humorous lyrics on this, and great simple guitar
accompaniment. This could be a good song for the
kiddies....and their parents....to acquaint them more fully
to the wild, wonderful world of vegetables.

Loved this! (great song art too)
