    This is the Way (Corn Song)
    This is the way we plant the corn, plant the corn, plant the corn.
    This is the way we plant the corn, so early in the morning.
    This is the way we
    ...water the seeds.
    ...hoe the weeds.
    ...pick the corn.
    ...shuck the corn.
    ...eat the corn!
