Parody Song Title:

"Whole Foods"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The last three verses of Larry Hart's original are repeats of the song's previous lyrics. I have taken the liberty of making all my verses non-repeating.
Whole Foods
You saw me sickly and thin
Without a blush on my cheek
Without a glow to my skin
Whole Foods
You knew you just had to heed me
You saw the way you should lead me
And had the health food to feed me

And then I saw there was a cornucopia
Of all the nuts and grains I could consume
(I know I have to use the rhyme “Utopia”)
And when I ate, my cheek began to bloom

Whole Foods
Now I’m not sickly and thin
Without a blush on my cheek
Without a glow to my skin

I ate organic goat cheese and quinoa
Wheatberry, kale, seaweed and tofu, too
Some dingleberries shipped fresh from Samoa
And pomegranates flown in from Peru

Whole Foods
My LDL is now 5
Systolic down to 16
I think I’m barely alive

Whole Foods
My LDL is now 5
I have a blush on my cheek
But I am barely alive

Strange foods there; I never could figure out why they called it Whole Foods - 555

Comedy is still alive and well, plenty of food for thought here

Al, you've done it again. Great to see you varying the repeat verses, or, as I've suggested elsewhere, extending yourself by even running through it twice when it's short. On a couple of your parodies you've left me begging for more. Another winner, 555

A delightful re-arrangement, and very relevant to recent comments on VM's thread. This tune should provide grist for some other mill.
