Why Are Green Beans On Your Plate,
Brother Dear?

Food Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Sam Jones


This song is available Veggie Songs By Sam Jones, Volume 1.

Lyrics:

(To the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know it”)

My little sister asked me one day...
Why are green beans on your plate, brother dear?
Why are green beans on your plate, brother dear?
Oh, I will tell you, sister dear

If you will lend an ear
Why green beans are on my plate, sister dear
Grean beans have lots and lots of vitamin A
They have fiber, thiamin, and vitamin K
You don’t seem to understand
Anything that I say
But you will when you grow up someday

And did you know green beans can help you to see
And they’re good for your bones and for your teeth
And did I mention too
They taste so good to me
So would you like to try my green beans?

Thanks for what you told me, brother dear
Oh thanks for what you told me, brother dear
And I did lend an ear
Because now it’s crystal clear
So put some green beans on my plate right here
And I did lend an ear
Because now it’s crystal clear
So put some green beans on my plate right here
Hey! They’re good! Thank you, brother dear
