The Lyrics

I eat meat, lots of meat. I wear leather, fur, and use soap made of animal fat. That's why the critters are here in the first place.
Turnip and Tomato

Cook'em up!


You're working hard, the barbecue
You chew fat everyday
For every pork chop you get to munch
I make the celery crunch
Breakfast, Dinner, all week long
Things go better with greens!
The only time you don't eat meat
Is when you're burping it up

Turnip and tomato
I need the veggies, gimme some more
Turnip and tomato
I'll still be living when you breathe no more

Now listen!

I wanna squash, I wanna beet
And don't forget the brocholi
Cauliflower, throw in some pees
Be healthy just like me
Lunchtime, snacktime, anytime
Things go better with greens
Eat gristle twenty four hours a day
Your heart will soon stop

Turnip and tomato
I bought my veggies, fresh from the store
Turnip and tomato
Oh how I love them, gimme some more
How 'bout a potato?
I want you to eat soy, and not wild boar

Turnip and tomato
Promise you'll love them, won't nag no more
Turnip and tomato
I'll be the apple, you be the core
Turnip and tomato
It's veggie living, open the door
Turnip and tomato
Meat is expensive, we are so poor
Turnip and tomato
I'm in the PETA, wear leather no more
Turnip and tomato
Boil some cabbage, eat meat no more
