Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater Lyrics :

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater
Had a wife and couldn’t keep her
He put her in a pumpkin shell
And there he kept her very well.

Put her in a pumpkin shell,
There he kept her very well.

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater
Had a wife and couldn’t keep her
He put her in a pumpkin shell
And there he kept her very well.

Put her in a pumpkin shell,
There he kept her very well.

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater
Had a wife and couldn’t keep her
He put her in a pumpkin shell
And there he kept her very well.

Put her in a pumpkin shell,
There he kept her very well.
