The Lyrics

Some kids eat what they want
They don't listen to Jan De Bont
Shun what TWISTER's director (yawn), who really cares, has to say
They just go to hell on a lunch tray

What are carrots?
Carrots are the sticks that stick with you
What are carrots?
Carrots are the picks of the smarty-poo

Some kids stink, thinking carrots are dumb
Just because to play them you must have special drums
They don't belong in the buns of yummy fare
Girning, spurning bunny nums as the fairest prepare

What are parrots?
Parrots are the birds who can beseech
What are parrots?
Parrots are the birds who are at the beach

Parrots say ampersands, parrots do swear
Or just surrender
Parrots are the birds who can start a vocal band
Parrots are the birds with orange hair

Parrots talk to the hand, parrots go there
Till mid-December
Parrots are the birds who eat crackers from your hand
Parrots are the birds who sound like Cher

What are carrots?
Carrots are the fun that wasn't there
What are carrots?
Carrots are the sheen that's in Charlie's hair

What are parrots?
Parrots are the birdies debonair
What are carrots?
Carrots are the clarity in your stare

What are Garretts?
Garretts are the couple in 4-A
What are ferrets?
I don't know, they really aren't my forte'

I guess you _merit_ a 555!!! "Carrots" reminds me of "Anne of Green Gables" ;-D

Thanks for the comment, I'm glad you decided to share it. I haven't read "Anne"--should I dare it? I guess if the shoe fits, wear it.
