Eatin' Greens

It's not that easy eatin' greens
Having to spend each meal
Consuming lots of leaves
When I think it could be nicer
Eatin' pizza or hoagies or Doritos
Or something much less good for you like that

It's not that easy eatin' greens
It seems your plate stands out
From so many other ordinary eats
And people tend to look you over
'Cause you're not blending in
Inhaling buffalo wings at happy hour
Or at the diner sharing pie

But green's the color of spring mix
And greens can be smooth and delicious-like
And greens can be big like collards
Or important like dinosaur kale
Or tall like celery

When greens are all there is to eat
It could make you wonder why
But why wonder, why wonder?
I eat greens and it'll do fine
It's beautiful raw food
And I think it's what I want to eat

With apologies to Joe Raposo, Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog.
