Notes

Here's another version:

(Chorus)
Oats, peas, beans and barley grow
Oats, peas, beans and barley grow
Can you or I or anyone know
How oats, peas, beans and barley grow.

First the farmer sows his seed,
Then he stands and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands
And turns around to view the land.

(Chorus)

Waiting for a partner,
Waiting for a partner,
Open the ring and take one in
While we all gladly* dance and sing.

(Chorus)

*or gaily

Game Instructions

The kids stand in a circle. The "Farmer" goes in the center of the circle. On the Chorus the players in the circle hold hands and go around in a circle while singing.

Then on the Chorus the kids go around in a circle around the new Farmer. On the 2nd verse the new Farmer performs the actions and so on until all of the kids have had a chance to be the Farmer.
