The Lyrics

DKTOS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gjb7UD7jPqM
(Kid)
A plate of green beans I see is SO icky!
Daddy said “Yummy”
He’s lost his mind
Carrots? Fake barf to show I’m picky
Salad makes me choke
“Yuck!” Won’t dine!

(Daddy)
“Eat Your Greens!”
“Eat Your Greens!”

(Mommy)
“Your daddy said son you’d better finish those onions”

(Daddy)
“Eat Your Greens!”
“Eat Your Greens!”

(Daddy)
Broccoli’s good eat your share

(Kid)
“YUCKY!!!”

(Mommy)
“Sonny, Finish your clam chowder”

(Kid)
Every now and then I bite
Just to get some cake
Eating brings me pains
With a bad tummy ache
Heard a “Meow”
Give it to the kitty
Pussy comes slow
Sniffs and runs quick

(Daddy)
“Eat Your Greens!”
“Eat Your Greens!”

(Mommy)
“Your daddy said son you’d better finish your onions”

(Daddy)
“Eat Your Greens!”
“Eat Your Greens!”

(Mommy)
“Your daddy said son you’d better finish your onions”

(Kid)
I sit there mess with beans and peas
They’re gross, they’re sick, and make me scream

I’d rather feast on ants and bees
It’s gross, it’s sick, and makes me scream

Try to hide them beneath my sleeves
But they fall out in one long stream

For just some Fruit Loops is what I plead
But dad keeps saying, “Eat your greens!”

To my grave when mom scoops me more
I was stupid, caught me dump them on the floor

I want a candy bar or a box of Nerds
This rabbit food is for the birds!

(Daddy)
“Eat Your Greens!”
“Eat Your Greens!”

(Mommy)
“Your daddy said son you’d better finish your onions”

(Daddy)
“Eat Your Greens!”
“Eat Your Greens!”

(Mommy)
“Your daddy said son you’d better finish your onions”

(Kid)
I sit there mess with beans and peas
They’re gross, they’re sick, and make me scream

I’ll never say “Yes” to munching on trees
It’s gross, it’s sick, and makes me scream

Get them all mashed with my spoon I squeeze
But now it just looks like I have sneezed

These veggies are poop
They make me bleed

I won’t dare eat this mess, I won’t touch the greens

This may be about veggies...but it's certainly not meatless

Hey, what's wrong with greens? You ought to try seaweed - it's really yummy.

I myself agree whole heartedly, I'm more of a meat kind of guy myself. You always have to pick the tougher songs by an artist don't you?

As a proud saladophobic, I can really relate to this.....but I can manage broccoli (preferably covered in gravy) ;-) 555

The main reason I chose this song is because I didn't think that Sugar Ray would something this Heavy Metal, it surprised me, and thus I must parody it. Thank all of you who read this not as popular Sugar Ray hit.

(Artistry) Fortunately, I was kid #5. By the time I came along my parents were tired of fighting the food battles and they rarely demanded that I eat anything. Fun and funny work here.

(Artistry) Ironically, it's my DAD who really complains about eating his greens! Ace work, Stove!

(Artistry) Like Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray was basically a punk band until they mellowed out and made the hits. This was funny (and I haven't even listened to it yet). This will get high marks I'm guessin'.

(Artistry) "I’ll never say “Yes” to munching on trees " Easily the hardest song to parody in the round, and you came through in FLYING colors. . .It amazes me that you were able to make this pace. . .but you did and the lines were classic, one of my favs on your long list of parodies.

(Artistry) Reminds me of the days when I used to hide brussel sprouts in the holes under my chair. Good work, Matthias.

Thanks for posting this at badave under "Pimp Your Parodies" Matthias. This is still one of your best, too bad the chance of getting a backing track for this is slim to none--I'd love to see this one recorded.
