Mr. Finney had a turnip
    And it grew and it grew;
And it grew behind the barn,
    And that turnip did no harm.

There it grew and it grew
    Till it could grow no longer;
Then his daughter Lizzie picked it
    And put it in the cellar.

There it lay and it lay
    Till it began to rot;
And his daughter Susie took it
    And put it in the pot.

And they boiled it and boiled it
    As long as they were able,
And then his daughters took it,
    And put it on the table.

Mr. Finney and his wife
    They sat down to sup;
And they ate and they ate
    And they ate that turnip up.
