The Lyrics

One of my top favorites that i've ever written. It's in my long line of songs about food. Enjoy.
I have often dreamed, of being buffed
To a point where Arnold would be smaller than me.
When my clothes will tear, when I go to stretch
And a voice keeps sayin', "This is how you get to be"

I'll be brave someday, when I try the spinach
It's the easiest way, if I want be strong
I know every bite, will be worth my time
When I try the spinach, I am going to be strong

Unbeknownst to me that the plant gave strength
Until someone told me, "It is good for you"
And the million cans will be worth the pain
It might take a lifetime, but somehow it'll make me grow

And I won't go back, when I try the spinach
No more life with fat, no I won't accept the meat
It's an awful smell, but only time will tell
When I try the spinach and become the next Popeye

But to look beyond the gluttony, is the hardest part
For a fatty's strength is bacon on pop tarts


Like a hungry boar, I will try the spinach
I will eat each piece, it won't waste at all
I don't care about runnin', I will try the spinach
Till I'm tired of eating spinach and I explode

I will eat each piece, it won't waste at all
Till I'm tired of eating spinach and I explode
Title by: Lars (Joe Fulton)Lyrics by: DJ-JohnnyRka (Jeff Bell)Bolton Bros. 1999
