SHUT UP AND EAT
TOO BAD NO BON APPETIT
SHUT UP AND EAT
YOU KNOW MY LOVE IS SWEET
Yes, I’m cooking for my son and his wife
It’s his 30th birthday
Pour berries into a bowl
Add milk of two months ago
“It’s moldy…mom, isn’t it?”
I don’t give a flying fuck though
REPEAT
It’s food nouveau
It’s the shape of love
Beat it! Beat it up!
Extra sugar, Extra salt, Extra oil and MSG
REPEAT
You were born in the 60’s
You made war with the Vietnamese
We love LSD
We died easily
Can’t we just say c’est la vie?
So what! Say what! For your own sake
Do you have a headache or heartbreak?
Are you made of broken by the birthday cake?
You may be slow on the uptake
I pour pot in the birthday cake?
So what! Say what! For my own sake
Watch out yo! Here I come yo!
I’m gonna change to a rattlesnake
Turn up the TV! Do you agree?
I’m talking turkey, Take it from me
I’m gonna show my love for my dove
‘But, it’s moldy…mom, isn’t it?”
Extra sugar, Extra salt, Extra oil and MSG
Extra Sugar, Extra Salt, Extra oil and MSG – REPEAT
