Green Giant - “Ho-ho-ho”
Green Sprout -
- “Pop, pop,
gather around me, all ye Cub Scouts.
I tell you the story of the Little Green Sprout.
The wise and friendly Scarecrow knows all, you see, About how the Jolly
Green Giant and his small friend came to be.
seems these two friends in a big
field of Corn
bright sunny day, most surely were born.
the old Scarecrow some talk overheard,
has come here now to pass along the word.
the field of Corn stood Farmer Brown and his son,
out all those weeds till the day was done,
those two worked as they did toil and sweat
make their new crop the finest one yet.
poor Scarecrow felt so guilty that day,
all he must do was scare birds away.
heard people say, “Isn’t that Scarecrow grand.
made this Corn field the best in the land.”
made him sad and down deep in his heart,
knew that this job was just a small part.
he stood there watched, an idea came to his head,
farmer and son were hoeing, the Scarecrow then said,
call them the Jolly Green Giant and Little GREEN Sprout.
soon the whole world will surely find out,
the fields of Corn and other crops too
grown by people like these faithful two.”
he told the Jolly Green Giant and Little Green Sprout
he knew what they did and sang praises with no doubt.
the story of the Jolly Green Giant and Little Green Sprout
spread to people near and far and all round about.
don’t think, my friend, it’s just a bunch of Corn
that’s the truth of how those two were born.
you hear that famed Jolly Green Giant
you’ve heard the secret from the old Scarecrow
how those green people help make things grow.
that those folks you see hoeing away,
symbolized now by that green pair today.
cheers for the Jolly Green Giant, LItTLE GREEN Sprout, Scarecrow,
and that field of Corn where it all came about.

Tomato Whistle a wolf whistle
day our Gardener went out to plant his garden.
The Gardener chose to plant his plot with many vegetables
including Cucumbers, Tomatoes, and Onions.
The Gardener took some seeds and planted first a row of Cucumbers,
then a row of Onions, then a row of Tomatoes.
Gardener then stood back to watch his garden grow.
Soon the Cucumbers, Onions, and Tomatoes had
sprouted. The Cucumbers fell in love with the Tomatoes but
the Onions stood between them. It
looked as though this budding romance would never be, because the Cucumbers were
in one row and the Tomatoes were in another and the Onions were
coming up between the two. The Cucumbers
grew to be big and tall, and the Tomatoes grew to be plump and sweet,
but the Onions still separated them.
all is not lost, one day, later in the season, our Gardener went out to
his garden and picked the Tomatoes, Cucumbers, and Onions,
and the Gardener made a great salad.
In this salad he placed the Cucumbers, the Tomatoes, and
the Onions, The Cucumber was
at last by his beloved Tomatoes, while the Onion had to stand
aside. That is, until the Gardener
ate his salad.
