The Lyrics

I ate my carrots
But I did not eat no broccoli
Oh no! NO!

I ate my carrots
I don’t care if they are good for me

All the time when my family dine
My mother so unkind
She say she want to bring me up healthy
So I must eat a lot of broccoli
Holy Christ! I hate broccoli

So I say:

I ate my carrots
But I smothered them with condiments
I ate my carrots
I must say, it was a vegetable offense

Farmer Ma, that’s her name to me
For give me crop, is all she know
Every time she bring broccoli
She say eat it, so you will grow
She say eat it, so you will grow

But I say:

I ate my carrots
But I will not eat my broccoli
I ate my carrots
It’s just veggies round the clock for me

My father, he is no help to me
He say listen to Farmer Ma
And don’t I know children are going hungry
In places such as Bountiful, Utah
Yes, they are STARVING, in Bountiful, Utah

I don’t care!

I ate my carrots
But I did not eat no broccoli
I ate my carrots
How unhealthy could a taco be?

Freedom came my way one day
Off to college, myself I found
All of a sudden, Farmer Ma comes round
Aiming to “stalk” me down
But then I talked, I talked her down

If we get pizza, I will pay

I ate my carrots
But I did not eat my broccoli
I ate my carrots
But I don’t eat no nasty broccoli, no!

A Claude Prez sighting! Good to see you on here, hope to see a few more? Funny song, and well written in character.

I love how you Bob Marleyed this one, and I also love how I can create new verbs out of singers names. It's also good to see you around Claude. Two parodies in about a week does this mean that you're going to making a comeback like Luke and Emiloca?!

First they say "you are what you eat" and then they tell me to eat vegetables! Enjoyed this.

I was thinking about this song last night with "I shot the toilet" (story from Utah yesterday). Funny write, Claude.

Lol, freakin' awesome. You used 'Marley-Grammar' too... "All the time when my family dine, my mother so unkind." Lol, 5, 5, 5.

Sir, Actually broccoli is not the worst of the lot . . . I & my sisters hated asparagus ! ! that gaggingly slippery & limp vegetable !

hehe, good job Claude! My pet veg peeve--brussels sprouts! There's nothing you can do to make them palatable except drown them in cheese.

Great capture of the "Marley" feeling with this song! I could hear him singing this in my head.
John Jenkins - January 19, 2009 - Report this comment
Great title and bad "stalk" pun.

Great work here. It's making me think of re-tackling one of my vegetable themed parody ideas.

...and just to prove it, here's the perfect syllable-match piece as well - and again I liked the inside-gag rhymes the best, ie. clock-for-me, taco-be, lol!......and thankyou for tweaking my conscience about world starvation (Ethiopia, Bangla Desh and Bountiful need all the assistance they can get) - 555
