[How Kids Eat]
What really happens when kids eat food?
Almost the same as blowing a kazoo
Food be used as food but other things too
We really don't care they're fun to chew!
Here's to chocolate! A marvelous thing!
A tasty delight that has another fun use
To smear on the face with gooey choco-juice
Makes for great camouflage and very messy games
Vegetables and fruits we'll never ever touch
Eying them suspiciously like spies in a bunch
Strangely enough these loops of fruit
go down the hatch without dispute!
If ice-cream doesn't melt and run down our arms
it isn't real at all and should sound your alarm!
If it's real and cold then don't come close
since it looks much better as a splat on your clothes!
Have you ever seen a child with baked beans?
Or for that matter eating salad greens?
Neither have I.
A good way to tell that they taste very iffy
If the dog takes a sniff and runs away in a jiffy
Candies and snacks and chocolate milk too!
Make a healthy diet from our point of view
Broccoli and Spinach and their little green friends
We know all their tricks and beat 'em in the end
White walls and furniture and clean carpets too
Just some of the places we try to chuck food through
So say hello to our jelly filled buns
that stick so well and so much fun!
There's only one rule that you should know
Never interrupt a child during a meal
If you do then prepare for a war
With rubber fists, squeals and tasty massacred gore
