DIETARY NOTES
(to the tune of "Mairzy Doats")

My family thinks I’m nutty as a fruitcake
Have to hunt on menus, find what I can eat.
Some call it crazy
Others think it’s bravery,   
They all should give up meat. Oh! 

Linezy dews and wolvezy dews
And cougarcubz grabb ambies
A kiddley tunterstew, wouldn’t you? Yes.
Linezy dews and wolvezy dews
And cougarcubz grabb ambies
A kiddley tunterstew, wouldn’t you? If the 

Words sound grim, go gripe to Uncle Jim, 
He’ll dress you in your camo
Cause lions eat ewes, but you can choose
A rifle and some ammo. Oh!

Linezy dews and wolves eat ewes
And cougar-cubs grab Bambis
A kid’ll eat hunter’s stew, wouldn’t you? Yes.
A kiddley tunterstew, wouldn’t you?
Scene from "The Elephant Show"

Weazly dens and foxy dens
Raccoonzan crosey chickies
A kiddley creecherstoo, wouldn’t you? Oh! 
Weazly dens and foxy dens
And little hoxy chickies
A kiddley creecherstoo, wouldn’t you? Now if the

Words sound grim, go gripe to Uncle Jim,
He’ll say, “Please be more plucky.
Cause weas’l eat hens, and fox eat hens
And we’ll go shoot some duckies.” Oh!

Weazly dens and foxy dens
Raccoons and crows eat chickies
A kid’ll eat creatures too, wouldn’t you? Yuk!
A kiddley creecherstoo, wouldn’t you?

Menny menny damanlam
Why lothers doton tofu
A kiddley mea-freatu, wouldn’t you? Yes.
Menny menny damanlam
Why lothers doton tofu
A kiddley mea-freatu, wouldn’t you? Now

Uncle Jim says, “Queer!” while chugging down a beer,
He’ll never understand it;
Some men snarf beef and ham and lamb
While some respect the planet.  

Many men eat ham and lamb
While others dote on tofu
A kid’ll eat meat-free too, shouldn’t you? Yes, a 
Kiddley mea-freatu, a 
Kiddley mea-freatu, a 
Kiddley mea-freatu, shouldn’t you?  Tofu!
