The Lyrics

I like oatmeal, so I don't think it tastes like shit. Some people though might not enjoy it as much as I do though. Although I doubt that you can keep from having heart disease by eating oatmeal, it probably is healthier than a lot of other things which Americans eat. In the United States though the most common types of oatmeal are often so highly processed that they have less fiber than they have naturally, so they're not quite the health food that some claim. Still, it doesn't stop me from having a bowl each morning.
Hello oatmeal my old friend
I've come to eat you up again
Because my LDL is too high
And I fear that I'll quickly die
And the vessels that are narrowed in my heart
Rips apart
Without the taste of oatmeal

I know this stuff taste just like shit
Into oatmeal my teeth bit
Bits of apple with berries too
Put in the oatmeal so I won't be blue
When my mouth was filled with the taste of
The oatmeal brew
Which taste like glue
And filled my mouth with oatmeal

But all the fiber that I ate
The many wonders it create
I am pooping without straining
I am running without panting
I am writing songs 'bout broken hearts in love
Not heart disease
Praising the taste of oatmeal

Fools, I said you do not know
I like oatmeal in a bowl
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my spoon and I might reach you
But my oats like silent raindrops fell
And keep you
From the taste of oatmeal

And the people bowed and prayed
To the vessel clogs they made
And the plaque flashed out its warning
In the symptoms it was forming
And the plaque said, the death of your children
Are written on the Happy Meals
And cattle lot fields
And eating your bowl of oatmeal

Another suggestion: check grammar, esp. matching subject and verb for singular/plural, e.g.: "vessels... rips", "stuff taste..." (stuff tastes), "brew... taste like" (tastes like). Keep fine-tuning -- it'll get there. 444
