about

The song "Who Grew My Soup?" was co-written by Story Laurie and a group of students from Delhi Elementary School in Delhi, NY. Inspired by the picture book of the same title, the song celebrates the school garden and Farm-to-School efforts underway at Delhi Elementary and an ever growing number of schools across the nation.

lyrics

Oh, I ask you: who grew my soup?
Yes I ask you-ou, who grew my soup?
Oh, I ask you, who grew my soup?
Was it you, oh-oh-oh, was it you-ou-ou?

I’m standing in the lunch line after working all morning
My belly’s been growling, sounding the warning
I see my favorite food on the menu today
Some fresh, hot soup that the lunch lady made

But I ask you....

The veggies were grown by some farmers we know
Who planted the seed, and tended their rows
Yes, this food came right from our own neighborhood
That is why this soup is so yummy and good

Chorus

Bridge:
We got the harvest vegetable -- Stir it on up!
We got the creamy broccoli -- Stir it on up!
We got tomato basil -- Stir it on up!
So many good soups to fill my tummy right up!

Chorus

So, really, who did grow my soup?
Farmers did!
You know that farm where we went pumpkin picking?
Oh yeah, I know that farmer!
She helped us plant beans in our school garden!
That’s right!
So, hey! I guess WE helped grow our soup, too!
Cool!

When the food that you eat comes from the soil ‘neath your feet
It’s guaranteed goodness that just can’t be beat!
Thanks to the farmers at the market and our school garden
A fresh and local food revolution is startin’

Chorus

Bridge:
Can we grow veggies on a rooftop? -- Yes, we can!
In a window box, too? -- Yes, we can!
Can we plant with our neighbors? -- Yes, we can!
How about a community garden? -- Yes, we can!
Can we plant with our Grandma? -- Yes, we can!
At the library, too! -- Yes, we can! (Si, se puede!)
