"Vega-Tables"

Wednesday, February 12, 2020

I was reading a Spark Member's blog this morning, "Learning to "love" --veggies!" by Leanjeans6 and it brought to mind this little kinown oldie but goodie (1967) song by The Beach Boys, called, "Vegetables" or as originally titled "Vega-Tables".

Wikipedia tells us that, "The song was partly inspired by Wilson's (Brian) obsession with physical fitness in the late 1960s. In a contemporary article, he stated, "I want to turn people on to vegetables, good natural food, organic food. Health is an important element in spiritual enlightenment. But I do not want to be pompous about it, so we will engage in a satirical approach." ( en.wikipedia.org
/wiki/Vegetables_(song)
)

While searching it out I came across this video where the song has been put together with veggie art. Pretty clever!!

And here are the lyrics:

Vega-Tables - Brian Wilson

I'm gonna be 'round my vegetables.
I'm gonna chow down my vegetables.
I love you must of all, my favorite vegetable.

If you brought a big brown bag
Of them home, I'd jump up and down
And hope you'd toss me a carrot

I'm gonna keep well, my vegetables.
Cart off and sell my vegetables.
I love you must of all, my favorite vegetable.

I tried to kick the ball, but my tennie
Flew right off. I'm red as a beet
'cause I'm so embarrassed.

Sleep a lot, eat a lot, brush 'em like crazy.
Run a lot, do a lot, never be lazy.
Sleep a lot, eat a lot, brush 'em like crazy.
Run a lot, do a lot, never be lazy.
Da da da da

I threw away my candy bar and I ate
The wrapper. And when they told me
What I did, I burst into laughter.

I know that you'll fee better, when you send us in your letter.
And tell us the name of your...Your favorite vegetable.

Enjoy!!!
