Seeds and Weeds

By Joanie Calem



Well it’s springtime and it’s garden time

Time to plant some seeds

Yeah it’s springtime and it’s garden time

We’ll also have to pull some weeds.


We’ve got to dig, in the dirt

Breakin’ up the soil

The worms will help us with this job

They don’t mind the toil.




We’ll plant our seeds in the earth,

Let their roots reach down.

Water them with love and care

The sun will warm the ground.




Whatever we plant will need our help

To make sure it can grow.

That’s why we’re careful what we plant

Cause we reap what we sow!




We help those seeds to bear their fruit

And they will help us too

When we work with Mother Earth

She’ll work with me and you!
