The Lyrics

Celery and broccoli
Are town green vegetables that
Taste gnarly

Kids and parents both hate them
Please don't make them
Eat that junk

We all know
That eating healthy food is the way to go
There are beets and peas
And brussel sprouts

I eat these foods
I've learned my body needs them
But there's two that won't do
I'd rather eat glue

Celery and broccoli
Are two green vegetables that are
Good for me
Side by side on my dinner
Plate they
Don't rate
They're so gross

Celery, Broccoli
They are both healthy foods for me
Celery, Broccoli

We agree
They taste good with peanut butter or cheddar cheese
But when they're alone
They're not so hot

So count me out
I don't want to see those veggies
Keep them off of my plate
I'd rather eat bait

Celery and broccoli
My physician has said that
They're healthy

So I ate some today
And I
Must say
They're quite yummy

So I ate some today
And I
Must say
They're quite yummy

I liked this parody and agree with its sentiments. :D Should have kept the rhyme scheme together, though, and I couldn't pace the fadeout lines.

I'm green with envy that you were able to use "Broccoli" as a parody title and make it work. I actually like broccoli (but then, those of you old enough to remember Daddy Bush shouldn't be surprised that a Democrat likes it), but celery? Yuck.
