lyrics

I have the mango
I have peaches I have plums
I have eggplant
I have yams and the mirliton
I have blueberry
I have cantaloupe too
My name is Mr. Okra and I bring them all to you
I said my name is Mr. Okra and I bring them all to you

I have bell pepper
Potato and pole bean
I have cucumber
I have the sweet strawberries
I have kumquat
I have apricot too
My name is Mr. Okra and I bring them all to you
I said my name is Mr. Okra and I bring them all to you

There ain’t no joy
Like your own employ
No better plan
I’m a self-made man
I love my truck and what I do
Gonna bring the garden straight to you
When you hear my voice you’ll know it’s true
I got joy, joy, joy, joy, joy

I have the mango
I have tomato and onion
I have banana
I have oranges and pecans
I have celery
Eatin’ pears and apples too
My name is Mr. Okra and I bring them all to you
I said my name is Mr. Okra and I bring them all to you

There ain’t no joy
Like your own employ
No better plan
I’m a self-made man
I love my truck and what I do
Gonna bring the garden straight to you
When you hear my voice you’ll know it’s true
I got joy, joy, joy, joy, joy

Joy, joy, joy, joy, joy
