The Lyrics

The OS was written for a 1955 TV production of Our Town. Decades later, it was famously used as the theme for Married with Children. OS:
Fruits and veges, fruits and veges—
Eat those cucumber and apple wedges!
Word up, sister, brother:
You’d better listen to your mother!

Fruits and veges, fruits and veges:
They can help you on the toilet’s edges.
Ask your local grocer
And order prunes and plums to go, sir!

Try, try, try to do without ‘em:
You’re constipated!
Try, try, try, and learn their nutrients
Can’t be debated.

Milk has mucus. Meat is fatty.
So don’t bank on that cheeseburger patty.
Fratboys, tell your pledges:
You’d better eat,
You’d better eat,
You’d better eat your fruits and veges!

What Alvin said. Very well rhymed.

A fun parody that, regardless whether wittingly, wittily rebuts my own recent submission. In my kidhood, tho', I'd still have said "Uh-uh,Mama, I don't wanna!" :-)
