Lyrics[]

Now, Lucy came from London to work for Farmer Pew.
She said, "I'm very willing. What would you like me to do?"
He said, "Fetch some potatoes, I'll need a bit of stone."
"And will you get King Edwards?" She said.
"Let him get his own."

Oh, gather in the mushrooms, put 'em in a pot...
Pop 'em in the oven, and serve them piping hot.

She climbed right up his pear tree in her mini-skirt,
And Farmer Bull stood underneath in case she should get hurt.
She said, "Up here, it's gorgeous. There's a lovely view, my dear,"
He said, "It ain't as lovely as the view I got down here."

Oh, gather in the mushrooms, put 'em in a pot...
Pop 'em in the oven, and serve them piping hot.

She picked a nice Sweet William to nibble with her lunch,
And then her blouse got caught up on the overhanging branch.
Suddenly, it tore off as she slithered down the tree,
She said, "I've got a lovely pear," and he said, "You're telling me."

Oh, gather in the mushrooms, put 'em in a pot...
Pop 'em in the oven, and serve them piping hot.

She fell and knocked the farmer down, sat there on his face,
She shouted out, "Where are you?" as she looked around the place.
She looked down and said, "Why didn't you say something, Farmer Bull?"
He said, "Because it's rude to speak when your mouth is full."

Oh, gather in the mushrooms, put 'em in a pot...
Pop 'em in the oven, an serve them piping hot.
We're going to gather in the mushrooms, put 'em in a pot...
Pop 'em in the oven, an serve them piping hot.
