About Oats and Beans


Oats and Beans is a traditional British and American folk song, 1380 in the Roud Folk Song Index. [1] In a book by Alice Bertha Gomme's book entitled "The Traditional Games of England, Scotland and Ireland" (1894) [2] this is a "play song", in which children perform actions with the song, standing in a ring.



The words are


Oats and beans and barley grow Oats and beans and barley grow Do you or I or anyone know how oats and beans and barley grow?


First the farmer plants the seeds Stands up tall and takes his ease Stamps his feet and claps his hands And turns around to view his land


Oats and beans and barley grow Oats and beans and barley grow Do you or I or anyone know how oats and beans and barley grow?


Then the farmer watches the ground Watches the sun shine all around Stamps his feet and claps his hands And turns around to view his land


Oats and beans and barley grow Oats and beans and barley grow Do you or I or anyone know how oats and beans and barley grow?
