The Lyrics

Haricots are kidney beans.
Rake the Terrain

I'll just rake the terrain—
To build up a hill to plant my haricots.

They'll push through the terrain—
Germinate and spring through the seeds' hardy coats.

Curried, these legumes, with dumplings—
Listen: There's my tail a-humming.

Now I'm going to bore the terrain—
Drill seed holes for next crop of haricots.
