Light up our eyes Brighten our lives With ten banana squash. We'll need ten cans of black-eyed peas They give you good strong muscles Ten of those tasty sprouts The ones that they call brussels We'd also like ten mangos They're the favorite of our sister Gert And one last thing Please do include ten apples for dessert! 10!
