The Lyrics

That sickening glob that's on my plate
I choose to just ignore
And nobody's going to make me eat it
I hardly know what it even is
My wife just doesn't understand it
She only says that it is good for me
And she can't see the reason
For her there's no reason
What reason does she need to be to-oh-oh-oh-old

Oh, my God, I don't like Tofu
Oh, my God, I don't like Tofu
Oh, my God, I don't like Tofu
I want to pu-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooke
The whole day long

Shop at A and P not GNC
And there I buy actual food
I pack my bags with chips
Also sirloin tips
And my thoughts turn to a nice barbeque
Eating leaves sure gives me the heaves
No, I won't be beat; gonna eat cooked meat
She can't see the reason
For her there's no reason
What reason does she need..ohhh, ohhh, ohhh

Oh, my God, I don't like Tofu
Oh, my God, I don't like Tofu
Oh, my God, I don't like Tofu
I want to pu-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooke
The whole day long, long, long, puke all day long

And all the cooking’s stopped in the kitchen now
She wants to eat all au natural
And she’s so eager that we’ll both be healthy
That dinner today is cold and raw
And then it just all blows up
And my real man shows up
With my thoughts ‘bout how I’d rather die
But she can’t follow reason
For her there’s no reason
What reason does she need to fry, fry..Ohhh

That sickening glob that's on my plate
I choose to just ignore
And nobody's going to make me eat it
I hardly know what it even is
My wife just doesn't understand it
She only says that it is good for me
And she can't see the reason
For her there's no reason
What reason does she need to be told


Oh, my God, I don’t like Tofu
Oh, my God, I don’t like Tofu
I don’t like (oh, my God)
I don’t like Tofu
Oh, my God, I don’t like
I don’t like (Oh, my God)
I don’t like Tofu
Oh, my God, I don't like Tofu
I want to pu-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooke the whole day long

Well done. Extra firm job.

Pacing was a tad off in a few places, but quite a funny parody. Best lines: "Shop A and P, not GNC" and "What reason does she need to fry".
