Peter-Peter Pumpkin Eater Lyrics

Who loves pumpkins more than Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater?

After all, Peter wants his wife to live inside one! In this adorable version of the Peter Peter Nursery Rhyme, Peter and his wife are squirrels who love to feast on pumpkins. They love it so much that they plan to live in a pumpkin!

However, they quickly discover that a pumpkin makes a terrible home because it decays. These lyrics to Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater teach students the process of decay inside a pumpkin. They learn how this process creates compost. The story teaches new vocabulary like compost, host, bacteria, germs, and decay.

The first couple of pages go like this: 

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

But day by day she did not stay.

A pumpkin rots and forms decay.

The sides grow soft and them it falls.

A house can’t stand without the walls.

Children will memorize the text with ease and then be able to track the words in the book. Therefore, this video of the book being read aloud,  the printable guided reading book and PowerPoint eBook Show will help students learn to read too.
