The Lyrics

When we’re dining at your mother’s house
She feeds us things I can’t choke down
Like collard greens and lima beans
And sometimes brussels sprouts

And now she’s serving me a plate of asparagus
A plate of asparagus
Asparagus! Asparagus!

Hominy and grits are awful
Why can’t I just eat a waffle
Then there’s liverwurst and onions
Bout as tasty as her bunions
Myst’ry meat that chews like leather
This dish won’t get eaten ever
Asparagus! Asparagus!

When we’re dining at your mother’s house
She feeds us things I can’t choke down
Like collard greens and lima beans
And sometimes brussels sprouts

And now she’s serving me a plate of asparagus
A plate of asparagus
Asparagus! Asparagus!

Funny stuff, although some of that food would be a lot better if mom knew her way around the kitchen. Are are you just a pizza and chicken McNuggets kind of guy? That said, I agree asparagus has to be consumed in small quantities. :-D

As a kid, I tried to avoid as much vegetables as possible. Now I really love eating salads. I always eat 3-5 helpings of them. I also like asparagus. Our mom, who is a nurse, try to convince me and my bro to eat lots of vegetables and fruits. But I have a weakness for sweets and pasta and fast food. Here's 5 Blue Cheese, 5 Italian, and 5 Spinach Dip for your asparagus!
