Roly Poly

Lyrics: Fred Rose
Music: Fred Rose

A Bob Wills song sung by Ross James with Phil Lesh and Friends.

Roly Poly, eatin' corn and 'taters Hungry every minute of the day
Roly Poly, gnawin' on a biscuit
Long as he can chew it, it's OK

He can eat an apple pie
And never even bat an eye
He likes everything from soup to hay
Roly Poly, daddy's little fattie
Bet he's gonna be a man someday

Roly Poly, scrambled eggs for breakfast
Bread and jelly twenty times a day
Roly Poly, eats a hearty dinner
It takes lots of strength to run and play

Pulls up weeds and does the chores
And he runs both ways to all the stores
He works up an appetite that way
Roly Poly, daddy's little fattie
Bet he's gonna be a man someday
