The Lyrics

*Meat substitute made from wheat gluten
We are fighting not to eat,
Get chills when we think of meat,
And the marmalade we once dipped is now gone.

The menus that spurred us on
Filled with junk food. . .fried won ton.
We deride now sticky buns as all wrong.

Get rid of fat and food reconstituted,
We'll now be veggied and heavily fruited,
Try for thin as we take off the pounds.
Pickles will replace filet,
Degust consommé,
Then we'll get out some peas and say:
"We won't get food again."

Free-range beef is all done,
The new thing's single prawn
That is marinated in juice of lemon.
We'd now hurl if we ate game,
We must have been deranged.
Fill the platters with crudités and not more.

Get rid of fat and food reconstituted,
We'll now be veggied and heavily fruited,
Try for thin as we take off the pounds.
Pickles will replace filet,
Degust consommé,
Then we'll get out some peas and say:
"We won't get food again."

I moved myself and I blocked out the light.
I was heavy--a Rabelaisian sight.
And my next-door neighbor weighed less than my thigh--
It was liposuction time, or nix stir fry.

There's no more marbled meat
We will be having as a treat
'Cause the tofu has replaced our ribeye.
Of Parmesan we're bereft,
And the Parkay's gone from sight,
And there'll be snacks no longer late at night.

Tri-tips with fat from my fridge have been booted,
Fruit from the bough is what I've saluted,
Decry gin; no cake of bundt or pound,
Pickles will replace filet,
Degust consommé,
Then we'll get out some peas and say:
"We won't get food again."
No, no!

Meat has been tossed--
Seitan* for meat's loss.

As Mike Myers' "SPROCKETS" host "Dieter" would say... "Delicious..."

A very good parody, but I had to dock you a point for dissing meat. Matter of fact, I just had a Wendy's Classic Double With Cheese. Beef AND dairy. Roll THAT in your joint and smoke it!
