The Lyrics

Fallow Field o' Beans

Earth so brown, yet so forlorn—
There's where I'd plant
My failing seeds.
Set the poles, so they could climb.
Then I planned for my grub: beans.
Why'd they fail? There's lots of sun.
Tilled the field—expecting green.
Here's a tip: Seed amber waves.
Got a fallow field o' beans.

It just won't give, a fallow field o' beans.
A fallow field o' beans.
A fallow field o' beans.
It just won't give, a fallow field o' beans.
A fallow field o' beans.
A fallow field o' beans.

I'd a yen to store a hoard. . .
Stuff a horde of neighbors next door.
But my plan's drifted away.
[Ocarina solo]


Next year I will strive for peas.
Before that I must
Give soil some feed.
Lye into (lye into)
This field I'll knead (field I'll knead).
Then wallow in (then wallow in)
Yield o' peas.
