Lyrics

I would love to eat something
that would not sit in my stomach
I could eat it while I sing
and I don’t think I would need
to chew my food, not at all
it would not taste like the fall.
Would it taste like anything
if it didn’t hit my mouth?
Would it taste like anything
if I could not taste one bit?

Have you thought of eating food
that was green and sometimes rude?
It could insult your knife
and say things like, “"Don’t” use that!
You should not poke or stab
things that were living and bled.
Only eat your vegeta”bles!"”
At least thats what my radish said.
“"On”ly eat your vegeta”bles!"”
At least that’s what my radish said.

Have you considered eating
lovely beets purple and not mean?
Have you considered eating
something green and quite slimy?
I’m thinking brussels sprouts.
Yes, those nasty brussels sprouts.
I have heard they have iron
if you need that mineral
Do you need some iron?
You could eat that instead of meat.
