beans, beans

  1. (ed: this is one of many songs about the 'benefits' of eating beans - any variations you recall will be much appreciated)

    Beans, beans, are good for your heart,
    They Make you strong and make you fart.
    A fart is a bubble of compressed air,
    Which gives the body ease.
    It warms the bed on a frosty night,
    And suffocates the fleas!

  2. Beans beans beans beans,
    Beans be ans beans beans,
    Beans are good for a broken heart,
    The more you eat the more you fart,
    The more you fart the better you feel,
    So eat you beans in every meal,
    Beans beans beans beans,
    Beans beans beans beans...

    repeat...

    Song sang at least in the Yorkshire area in many a playground!

  3. (ed: these are the possibly better known lines - now further popularised by the Simpsons)

    Beans beans the musical fruit.
    The more you eat,
    The more you toot.

  4. Still a classic playground rhyme in current use as evidenced by Bart Simpson a few years back (see previous definition):

    Beans, beans the musical fruit
    The more you eat, the more you toot!
    Beans, beans they are good for your heart.
    The more you eat, the more you fart.
    The more you fart, the more you eat,
    The more you sit on the toilet seat!

    Alternate version of 2nd verse:

    The more you fart the better you feel
    So let's have beans for every meal

    Yet more:

    Beans beans good for your heart,
    The more you eat the more you fart.
    The more you fart the better you feel,
    Beans beans oh what a thrill!

    (ed: any more bean rhymes?)

  5. (ed: this one sent in by Chookas)

    Beans, Beans the magical fruit,
    The more you eat, the more you toot,
    The more you toot the better you feel,
    So lift your leg and let it squeal!

  6. Beans, beans, good for your heart
    The more you eat the more you fart.
    The more you fart the better you feel
    So eat beans with every meal.
