lyrics

9. Artie's Community Garden
Lead vocal by Artie Choke

Artie
Artie Choke
He’s a heartie smarty bloke

Hello bulbs and girls, welcome to Artie’s community garden
I hope you’re all hungry
cos everybody eats when they come to my patch

Hello, what’s your name?
Sean
Sean, have some corn
and you?
Peg
here Peg, have an egg
have a bean Dean
have some peas Louise
everybody eats when they come to my patch

and your name
Jess
have some cress
and you?
Dale
here Dale, try some kale
try a leek, Zeke, eat some squash Josh
Everybody eats when they come to my…

Chorus
Community garden
Community garden
Community means you and me doing things in unity
everybody eats when they come to my patch

There’s just so much food growing all over the place, can you see it?
No
Look closely now, see

We’ve got Aspara Gus growing here
Rocket and Ru Barb over there
We’ve got Collie, Sue Kini and Baby Broccolini
Everybody eats when they come to my community garden

Would you like to hear a joke?
Yeah

Okay, what kind of vegetable do chickens grow on?
Eggplants!

What about this, why did the potato go to the doctor?
Because he wasn’t peeling well

Oh I’ve just thought of another one
Knock knock
who’s there?
can o’ peas
canna peas who?
can o’ peas come inside the house
Moooooo!
that joke was rotten Artie
ah well, we’ll just put it on the compost heap with the others
now look here

We’ve got potato and turnip too
all that we need for a veggie stew
we’ve got basil, tomato, thyme and oregano
everybody eats when they come to my….

Chorus
Community garden (can you sing that with me?)
Community garden (ah very good)
Community garden (now you)
Community garden
Community means you and me and all your friends and family
everybody eats when they come to my patch

Have you seen our chooks?
uh-uh
look
this is Mildred, Daisy, Margaret, Maisie
and just look at these eggs they’ve been laying,
aren’t they amazing?

And look over here, we’ve got bees
oooh
this is Busby….. (buzzing sound)
actually, I haven’t got around to naming all the bees yet
the problem with bees is they tend to drone on

Oh hello, you’ve got your hand up,
do you have a question?

Aren’t vegetables afraid of being eaten?

Oh, what a good question. Can I tell you something? Vegetables LOVE being eaten. That’s right. It’s what we live for. You see, vegetables and human beings are partners.
We feed you and you grow us, and the more you eat us, the healthier you’ll be. You see friends, we’re not scared of you, so why should you be scared of us?

Now can everyone put two fingers in the air with me and say “peas”

PEAS

Wonderful! Thank you for coming along to my community garden today bulbs and girls, and remember, everybody eats when they come to my patch.

And now bulbs and girls, I’m very excited to announce that we have a live band playing at my community garden today. Please welcome, all the way from your kitchen….The Herby Hancocks!
