A carrot, parsnip and a swede
Were lined up for a race
The swede kept making false starts so,
Retires with much disgrace.
But now they’re off, the carrot leads
He’s the fastest we have seen
But who’s that joining in the race?
It is the runner bean.
All of them are neck and neck
The winning post’s in view.
But who will win and be the first
To jump into the stew?
