Merle Haggard – Roly Poly lyrics

Hey Roly Poly, eatin' corn and taters
Hungry every minute of the day
Roly Poly knowin' all the biscuits
Long as he can chew it, it's okay

He can eat an apple pie
And never even bat an eye
He likes everything from a soup to hay

Roly Poly, daddy's little fatty
And he's gonna be a man someday
Roly Poly scrambled eggs for breakfast bread
And jelly twenty times a day

Roly Poly eats a hard day dinner
It takes lots of strength to run and play
Bowls up weeds and does the chores
Run both ways to holiday's stores

He wears up that appetite that way
Roly Poly, daddy's little fatty
But he's gonna be a man someday
