Tune: Patty Hall.


It’s organic, organic, organic, you see.
Crunchy granola and camomile tea.
Be sure to put wheat germ in all that you eat.
Throw out your Ding Dongs and never eat meat.

We used to all live in the city and feast
On Big Macs and Ripple and Twinkies, at least.
But now, we’ve all moved to the country and say,
“If you don’t live organic, it just ain’t the way.”

We’ve broken old habits of unhealthy vice.
We now eat fresh seaweed and short-grained brown rice.
We’ve cleared out our cupboards, threw out those stale rolls.
By planting a garden, we’ve cleaned up our souls.

It’s organic, organic, organic, you see.
Crunchy granola and camomile tea.
Be sure to put wheat germ in all that you eat.
Throw out your Ding Dongs and never eat meat.

Marty’s our neighbor who lives up the hill.
He gave up Hostess cupcakes and old Taco Bell.
I went over to borrow some yogurt last night,
Walked into his kitchen and met with this sight.

He was frying up catnip and grasshopper heads.
While stirring his banquet, he looked up and said,
“I know it looks putrid; it tastes just like hell.
But, man, it’s organic. That makes it all swell.”

It’s organic, organic, organic, you see.
Crunchy granola and camomile tea.
Be sure to put wheat germ in all that you eat.
Throw out your Ding Dongs and never eat meat.

Oh, Hillary lives upstairs, alone in her room.
She reads Adele Davis and weaves on her loom.
There’s a rumor, though, that Hillary, despite what she said,
Keeps a big box of Hershey bars stashed under her bed.

But we forgive these transgressions and don’t say a word
When one of us slips and eats something absurd.
We all sneak our Fritos in moments of stress,
But at least we’re organic when there’re friends to impress.

It’s organic, organic, organic, you see.
Crunchy granola and camomile tea.
Be sure to put wheat germ in all that you eat.
Throw out your Ding Dongs and never eat meat.
