The Lyrics

Waiter! bring me a bowl of turtle soup! AND MAKE IT SNAPPY!
I just drink Latte' and bamboo tea my dear
I like my bag hung on the side
and you can see it in my look, "haggard" when I walk,
vegetarian in New York

see me walking down Fifth Avenue
meat disdain here right outside
hot dogs everywhere I look
vegetarian in New York

oh oh vegetarian, I'm a vegetarian,
vegetarian in New York
oh oh vegetarian, I'm a vegetarian,
vegetarian in New York

if mammals maketh man, as someone said
the he's barbarian that day
furriness, not dietry, are soon in our society
we'll eat just pants just each and every one

oh oh vegetarian, I'm a vegetarian,
vegetarian in New York
oh oh vegetarian, I'm a vegetarian,
vegetarian in New York

nourishment, banishment, can lead to your astonishment
as a meat monger, you're number one
idleness, complicity, eat a plant, not some pigglies
and then you'll be much better to your bum

takes more than guns and spears to feed a man
takes more than barbeques of meat
confront your prey you eat, and love them when you can
vegetarians won't kill, it's just not neat


if mammals maketh man, as someone said
the he's barbarian that day
furriness, not dietry, are soon in our society
we'll eat just pants just each and every one

oh oh vegetarian, I'm a vegetarian,
vegetarian in New York
oh oh vegetarian, I'm a vegetarian,
vegetarian in New York

oh oh vegetarian, I'm a vegetarian,
vegetarian in New York
oh oh vegetarian, I'm a vegetarian,
vegetarian in New York
