ROLY POLY
 

Roly Poly, eatin' corn n' 'taters

Hungry ev'ry 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

An' 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 n' jelly twenty times a day

Roly Poly, eats a hardy 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
