Marcia and Jon Pankake, A Prairie Home Companion Folk Song Book (London: Faber and Faber, 1989): 8.
1The mushroom is a vegetable
2To select it few are able
3You won't know them when you meet them
4You won't know them 'til you eat them
5If in heaven you awaken
6You will know you were mistaken
7And the ones that you have eaten
8Weren't the ones you should have et.
