The Lyrics

you don't eat like ya oughta...ground round and ham
you will die if your heart goes pop...don't you understand
you may say (you may say)...meat is all the rage
but i say (but i say)...risk is hard to gauge
hey buddy...why you fryin' up that awful good to eat
i suspect it will harm...why don't you try some wheat

why be a carnivore...just leave it to rot
why be a carnivore...your heart gets shot

take a minute to think...'bout longevity
i'm tryin' to tell ya, people...people, don't eat meat
throw away (throw away)...this life of horrors
or you may (or you may)...find your health, poorer
so give it up already if you want to endure...that much is sure
no meat on the side, meddlin' in that carnal world

why be a flesh should cook
why be a carnivore...get off the hook
hey buddy...don't you care about the things you eat...meat ain't no treat
you will soon buy the farm...your heart will cease to beat

why be a carnivore...when veggies are hot
why be a carnivore...when veggies are hot
why be a carnivore...when veggies are hot
