The Lyrics

About a kid whose mom gave him dinner and he doesn't know what it is.
You could give me a whole lot of money,
You could give me and real nice car
Give me anything a man could want,
Cause I won’t do what you ask to.
I will just sit here and pout
I’ll even stay awake through the night.
'Cause you made me a gross... a gross looking dinner
And these vegetables just don’t look right

But now mommy, it’s not right,
And my mommy, making me eat right
Don't you know she made ... this some kind of vegetable
It’s some kind of vegetable ... yes it is, it’s,
It’s some kind of vegetable, oh, come on, no…

When I bring it to my lips
It just sets my fork on fire
Oohh, then my mommy forces me,
I think I’d rather eat some barbed wire.
When she brings her veggie platter near me,
And it scares me out of my mind.
Yeah, then my mommy watches me,
And she won’t let me decline

But now mommy, it’s not right,
And my mommy, making me eat right
Don't you know she made ... this some kind of vegetable
It’s some kind of vegetable ... yes it is, it’s,
It’s some kind of vegetable, oh, come on, no…

Now is there anybody, who can tell me what this is right here?
There has to be somebody, who can, who can tell me what this is right here- yeah!
Why am I the victim?
My mom made me eat this
I know it’s not carrots.. no...
Or some rutabagas…no
Why’d she make me eat this? Why?
You are all a witness… yes

I'm talkin', talkin' 'bout my mommy. Yeah.
It’s some kind of vegetable.
I think she’s gone crazy.
It’s some kind of vegetable.
Some one come please save me.
It’s some kind of vegetable.
I'm talkin' 'bout my mommy, she’s crazy, she scares me.
It’s some kind of vegetable.
I'm talkin' about my mommy, she’s crazy, she made me.
Eat some kind of vegetable.
No, no, no, no… she’s crazy, she made me.
Eat some kind of vegetable.
I'm talkin' 'bout my mommy, she’s crazy, she scares me.
It’s some kind of vegetable.
I'm talkin' about my mommy, she’s crazy, she made me.
Eat some kind of vegetable.
