Roly Poly    (1946)

Roly Poly, eatin' corn and taters
He's hungry every minute of the day
Roly Poly, gnawin' on a biscuit
As long as he can chew it, it's okay

He can eat an apple pie before a cat can blink his eye
He likes anything from soup to hay
Roly Poly, Daddy's little fatty
I bet he's going to be a man some day

Roly Poly, scrambled eggs for breakfast
Bread and jelly twenty times a day
Roly Poly, eats a hearty dinner
It takes a lot strength to run and play

Well he pulls the weeds and he does the chores
He runs both ways to all the stores
He works up an appetite that way
Roly Poly, Daddy's little fatty
I bet he's going to be a man some day

Roly Poly, eatin' corn and taters
He's hungry every minute of the day
Roly Poly, gnawin' on a biscuit
And as long as he can chew it, it's okay

He can eat an apple pie and never even bat an eye
He likes anything from soup to hay
Roly Poly, Daddy's little fatty
I bet he's going to be a man some day
