lyrics

Petits Filous Yoghurt Pots

I’m growing strawberries
And tomatoes
In petit filou yoghurt pots
On my window sill
But they’re

Not growing yet
Not growing yet
Though I’m watching and willing them
Talking and bigging them
Up
No they’re not growing yet

I’ve used a funnel and sieve
For a shiny watering can
And I’ll turn them 60 degrees
Like soldiers six times a day,
But they’re

Not growing yet
Not growing yet
Though I’m watching and willing them
Talking and bigging them Up
No they’re not growing yet.

Well I
Planted the seeds
To see if I can
I can’t blame the sieve
I can’t blame the sun
I’ve given them everything
A small plant could want
But they don’t seem to care
This is all that I’ve got
