I want to eat something that’s blue
and I was thinking blue algae
It’s an algae and it is blue.
But it is only a little blue.

It’s also green, that blue algae.
And some people call it super food.
But I’m not one of them, oh, no.
I just call it regular food.

I hope you like my song today.
I’ve made it just right for you.
I think it is really good today
and I really hope that you like it.

I thought that perhaps you might like
to eat a lovely bisquit or two.
Perhaps something unusual
like a giant rutabega.

But perhaps you have rutabega
over at your house, I hear.
Perhaps you have some rutabega
dancing in your left or right ear.

I thought that you might find
something really lovely on your hair
but you have no hair and that’s sad
because you are going bald up there.
