lyrics

You need to eat your vegetables—eat them now, eat them now!
I want you to clean your plate—eat them all, eat them all!
The dog doesn’t need your vegetables—slipping food to the dog, slipping food to the dog!
I know that when you put it in your mouth, you place it in a tissue.
And if you think I know you try and change the issue!
Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies!
Eat them now! Eat them now!
Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies!
Eat them now! Eat them now!
You are growing and you need your veggies—eat them now, eat them now!
If you think that I’ll just forget—you are so wrong, you are so wrong!
You’re gonna’ have to eat them sooner or later—now or then, now or then!
If you don’t eat them hot, you’re going to eat them cold.
If you don’t eat them new, you’re going to eat them old!
Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies!
Eat them now! Eat them now!
Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies!
Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies!

Thank you.
I’m sorry that I left you in the science lab.
Did they do experiments on you?
They turned you into a vegetable.
Your roots are growing, your chlorophyll is showing.
I’m so sorry that I left you on the garden gate,
Where you now sit and vegetate.
You are now not human, now not normal,
You’re a veggie on my plate.
Now I’m eating your left side, for your right side, I already ate!
I put you in the blender, I put you in the grate, I even put you in a jug of V8!
You did not come from outer space, but I dip you in my cheese.
You make my guests smile, and say “may I have some more please?”
So I sing to you a vegetable serenade!
So I sing to you a vegetable serenade!
So I sing to you a vegetable serenade!
There once was a human, who had a vegetable garden,
And when he sprayed with toxic waste, all the vegetables would harden.

Pick all the vegetables up, stir them in a cup.
Make some vegetable stew, that will really make him drool.

A broccoli and a squash were the human’s friends.
He studied the vegetable language and learned all the vegetable trends.
“Oh cauliflower, brussel sprouts—I eat them while I’m in or out!
Oh cabbage, lettuce and carrots—I feed them to my parrots!
Oh broccoli, celery, turnips—I medicate them to burn-ups!
Asparagus, eggplants, and peas—They’re good for making teas!
Lima beans, string beans, and baked beans—You’ve got to get what I means!
Please don’t give me the meats, I’d rather be eating me beets! (please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies)
Oh help me, help me, help me—I think I’m a vegetable junkie!” (please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies)
Please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies!
So I sing to you a vegetable serenade!
So I sing to you a vegetable serenade!


A lima bean was on my plate, and a rotten date.
I like lima beans, vegetables can talk inside of high-pitched voices.
They make their own choices.
They have veins and skin, and but not blood within.
Just paste—the kind you eat in kindergarten.
Just paste—but green, not white, like kindergarten.
Please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies!

Just paste—the kind you eat in kindergarten.
Just paste—but green, not white, like kindergarten.
Please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies!
Please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies!
Please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies!
Please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies!

I push aside the date, and attempt to communicate with the lima bean.
Vegetables can talk, but I just realized something,
This vegetable is dead, now nothing can be said.
I’ll just have to eat my food, and strip the vegetable nude.

And eat paste—the kind you eat in kindergarten.
Paste—but green, not white, like kindergarten.
Green not white like kindergarten!
Please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies!
Eat them now, eat them now!
Please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies!
Eat them now, eat them now!
Please eat your veggies, please eat your veggies!
Eat them now, eat them now!
So I sing to you a vegetable serenade!
So I sing to you a vegetable serenade!
