TEN TINY TURTLES ON THE TELEPHONE
Ten tiny turtles on the telephone
Talking to the grocery man
"We would like some lettuce,
Please send us ten heads please,
And ten sweet potatoes
And ten rutabagas with the dimples on their knees.
And send us 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Ten eggplants over easy
That's one of our little jokes ( ha ha ha )
Ten leafy, leafy collard greens
And please make sure they're washed!
Light up our eyes
Brighten our lives
With ten banana squash.
We'll need ten cans of black-eyed peas
They give you good strong muscles
Ten of those tasty sprouts
The ones that they call brussels
We'd also like ten mangos
They're the favorite of our sister Gert
And one last thing
Please do include ten apples for dessert!
