 The Compost Song

Sung to the tune to
“Take Me out to the Ball Game”

Take me out to the compost
Take me out to the pile.
Add some soil and a few good worms
I don’t care if I’m turned and I’m churned.
‘Cause it’s root, root, root for the microbes;
If they don’t win it’s a shame.
For in two, four, six weeks, I’m out
in the old garden!
