The Lyrics

;-)
Root, root root, Root, then swirl
Root, root, Root then swirl
Root, root, Root then swirl
Root, root, Root then swirl

Root, root, Root, then swirl
Root, root, Root, then swirl
Root, root, Root, then swirl
Root, root, Root, then swirl

Now my - my stalk stands unfurled
Delving is tops, my cuke won't curl
And-a ply, ply vir-gin soil
Won't root in ol' dirt no, oh no
Yes-a, I, oh I wanna shove thru, oh oh
Carrot's bent on cultivatin'
'Cause I must root, then swirl
All day ay ay ay

A field fertile, strew all my Veggies
Veggies like pearls
I'll coax thru moist humus
And-a sacrifice all those tares
Yes-a, I, oh I'll plow this farrow, oh oh
Stuffing this crop to sow
'Cause I must root, then swirl
In hay ay ay ay

Root, root root, Root, then swirl
Root, root, Root then swirl
Root, root, Root then swirl
Root, root, Root then swirl

Root, root, Root then swirl
Root, root, Root then swirl
Root, root, Root then swirl
Root, root, Root then swirl

Yes-a, I, oh I'm gonna break thru, oh oh
Rutting can help me grow
'Cause I must root, then swirl
Seeds spray-ay-ay-ay

Original and clever take on an oldie; great work extending (no pun intended!) the veggie/sexual symbolism beyond the obvious. 5-5-5!
