Ain't nothin' in the world that I like better than
Bacon and lettuce and homegrown tomatoes
Up in the morning and out in the garden
Get you a ripe one, don't get a hard 'un.
Plant'em in the springtime eat'em in the summer,
All winter without 'em's a culinary bummer.
I forget all about the sweatin' and the diggin'
Every time I go out and pick me a big'un.
Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes,
What'd life be without homegrown tomatoes,
There's only two things that money can't buy
That's true love and homegrown tomatoes.
You can go out and eat, that's for sure,
But it's nothin' a homegrown tomato won't cure
You can put'em in a salad, put'em in a stew
You can make your very own tomato juice
You can eat'em with eggs, you can eat'em with gravy
You can eat'em with beans, pinto or navy
Put'em on the side, put'em on the middle
Put a homegrown tomato on a hot cake griddle
If I could change this life I lead,
Well I'd be Johnny Tomato Seed
Cause I know what this country needs,
It's home grown tomatoes in every yard you see
When I die don't bury me
In a box in a cemetery
Out in the garden would be much better
And I could be pushin' up homegrown tomatoes.
