Down On My Allotment

Down on my allotment there are vegetables and flowers,

I’ve planted every one of them and stay for hours and hours;

I have a little shed where I can make a cup of tea,

Down on my allotment is the only place for me.

Carrots, cauliflower, onions and beans,

Courgettes, Brussel sprouts, squash and winter greens;

Tulips, daffodils, marigolds and stocks,

Sunflowers, violets, daisies, hollyhocks.
