The Watermelon Song

Well, I was out in my garden pullin' up weeds.

When I got to the place where I planted those seeds,

it was the biggest thing that I'd ever seen,

like a giant football but the color was green!


slurp  spit (x3) Ah!

Dou-ble U-A- T-E-R---M-E-L-O-N, what's that spell?



I sat down the other day just to have a little snack.

I took a piece of watermelon out of my sack

It ran down my chin and onto my clothes

I got it in my hair, I got it up my nose!


it's green on the outside, pink on the in

But your stomach's gonna ache it you eat the white skin

And you better spit those seeds, ’cause I’m telling you, brother,

They’re gonna come out one end or the other.
