Transcribed by Michael T. Balonek

I love you,
A bushel and a peck,
A bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck.
Hug around a neck and a barrel and a heap,
Barrel and a heap and I'm talking in my sleep

About you,
(about you?)
About you.
(My heart is leapin'! I'm havin' trouble sleepin'!)
'Cause I love you,
A bushel and a peck,
You bet your pretty neck I do.

Doodle-oodle-oodle,
Doodle-oodle-oodle,
Doodle-oodle-oodle doo.

Doodle-oodle-oodle,
Doodle-oodle-oodle,
Doodle-oodle-oodle doo.

I love you,
A bushel and a peck,
A bushel and a peck,
Tho' it beats me all to heck,

Beats me all to heck that I'll never tend the farm,
Ever tend the farm when I wanna keep my arm about you.
(About you?)
About you.
(The cows and chickens are going to the dickens!)
'Cause I love you,
A bushel and a peck,
You bet your pretty neck I do.

Doodle-oodle-oodle,
Doodle-oodle-oodle,
Doodle-oodle-oodle doo.

(Goodbye, now!)

Doodle-oodle-oodle,
Doodle-oodle-oodle,
Doodle-oodle-oodle doo.
