The Lyrics

The military has always had field rations to eat on active duty.Now, civilians in the wake of disaster are served the same by FEMA.This song attempts to attest to how some soldiers feel about MREs.
"Eat It"
(MRE – Meal Ready to Eat)

How come you're always such a wimpy soldier man
Don't want no Army lunch, don't want no Navy Bran
Well, don't you know that other soldiers are starving in Iran
So eat it, just eat it

In the Army you have to follow orders there is no debate
The Sergeant doesn't care about what kind of food you hate
You'll get KP if you don't clean off your tin plate
So eat it

Don't you tell me you're full, that's bull
Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it
Take this MRE and beat it
Have some more macaroni, have some more potato pie
It doesn't have to be boiled or fried
Just eat it, eat it, just eat it, eat it
Just eat it, eat it, just eat it, eat it

Your field eating manners are not by the book
You're staring at your food, it's not gonna cook
If you don't eat your meal I'll report you to Sergeant Hook
So eat it, just eat it

You better listen to orders, better do what you're told
You haven't even touched your beef casserole
You better chow down or it's gonna get old
So eat it

I don't care if you're full
Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it
Open up your mouth and feed it
Have some more ham, have some more spam
It doesn't matter if it's canned
Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it
Don't you make me repeat it
Have a cracker, have a whole bunch
It doesn't matter what you had for lunch
Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it
Eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it

Eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it
It's already cold, don't let it get old
Have a big dinner, cause you can't snack
If you don't like it, the Army won't send it back
Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it
Take this MRE and beat it (oh lord)
Have some more macaroni, have some more potato pie
It doesn't have to be boiled or fried
Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it
Don't you make me repeat it (oh no)
Have a cracker, have a whole bunch
It doesn't matter what you had for lunch
Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it

Not bad. Pacing could use some work, though.

Yeah, "have some more potato pie" doesn't work. You can't insert a 3-syllable word.
