The Lyrics

A song based on the excellent movie of the same name. If you haven't seen it, you should go out and rent it. It's a really great movie.
"Soylent Green is pe"
Let me see you stand here in line,
For your Soylent Green,
Yeah, for your Soylent Green,
Just for your Soylent Green,
You hungry? Need food?
Try some Soylent Green,
Try some Soylent Green,
Just try some Soylent Green,
Forget the old Soylent Red,
Now you need Soylent Green,
Now you need Soylent Green,
You need your Soylent Green,
It's great, you just can't,
Go wrong with Soylent Green,
Go wrong with Soylent Green,
We all love Soylent Green,

Here,
In NYC,
Just before 2023,
Sleeping people line the streets,
And we've run out of eats, fruits, veggies, and meats,
What people would do just for a lima bean or two,
But with 20 million unemployed, there's not much left here for you,
They die in the cold and all the food has run out,
With so many people, all you could do was sit and pout,
Everyone's hungry, crowded riots are commonplace,
Have to get out the scoops on distribution days,
But here comes the government with an idea oh so keen,
Made from fresh-farmed lentils and mass amounts of soybeans,
With plankton in the mix to give the crackers some good protein,
Everybody out on the street wants this Soylent Green,
Yo,
It's given out to people on this coming Tuesday,
But people are lining up right now outside here anyway,
It seems like they've been waiting there for nearly half an eon,
When finally distribution starts, people can't wait to eat "em,
There's a lot of the Green,
But more demand, though,
They're out of Soylent Green, Time for the second plan, so,

Let me see you fight the police,
To get your Soylent Green,
To get your Soylent Green,
You need your Soylent Green,
You risk life and limb,
When you get Soylent Green,
When you get Soylent Green,
Fight for the Soylent Green,
Oh yes, it sure beats,
Living off of lima beans,
Off of lima beans,
Just eating lima beans,
When are they getting more,
Of that Soylent Green,
We want more Soylent Green,
Just some more Soylent Green,

Murdered for the Green, it was too much for him to know,
Dude broke into his house and beat him down with a single blow,
Now a cop is in on it, and you know that he ain't messin',
Because his character is played by the legendary Charlton Heston,
He and his new girlfriend,
Are looking into the life's end,
And everyone is trying to hide something, trying to word bend,
Assassin,
On his tail, cop punched him and his female,
Man, he's suspicious and he's getting close to secrets unveiled,
So he ends up at the factory following a man old enough to be his grandpa,
Now the Soylent's what he sees,
It's green and awful crunchy,
He walks a level below and guess what it is that he sees,
Body after body,
Dumpin' and smellin' funky,
So he runs out and is shot twice, quite unlucky,
Back at the church, he fights it out with those who chased him in,
He's dying but he has to say that Soylent Green is men!

How "bout this,
They've been feeding you that Soylent Green,
You eat that Soylent Green,
Just love the Soylent Green,
People fight to consume,
All the Soylent Green,
All the Soylent Green,
They need the Soylent Green,
And now you all know,
It is Bob and Janine,
Or Auntie Christine,
Or Avril Lavigne,
Now who wants to have,
Some more that Soylent Green,
You want some Soylent Green?
Got all this Soylent Green,

Green, Green, Green, Green,
Green, Green, Green, Green,
Green, Green, Green, Green,
Green, Green,
Come get your Soylent, people,
Green, Green, Green, Green,
Green, Green, Green, Green,
Green, Green, Green, Green,
Green, Green,
Come get your Soylent, people,

Tell me who wants some more,
Of that great Soylent Green,
Some more good Soylent Green,
To eat some Soylent Green,
When it could have been your friends,
Just eat your Soylent Green,
Eat up, it's Soylent Green,
New York loves Soylent Green,
Now it's 99 percent,
Fat people free,
Fat people free,
Mostly fat people free,
So who wants some more,
Of this great Soylent Green?
I want some Soylent Green,
Come on, folks, it's on me.
And try new I Can't Believe It's Not Soylent Green! TM
