Hey ya'll --
Put away that junk food
I'm moving in a green groove
Don't want that old confinement
Of sugar in refinement
Instead I want a big mess
Of greens and corn and freshness
A taste of something precious
GIVE ME A VEGETABLE WRAP!

Carrots have some merit
The radish is not faddish
Onions from the grill:
Even squash give me a thrill
I say lay it in a pita
Roll it up in a tortilla
I'll put cabbage in my baggage
I'M TAKING THE VEGETABLE WRAP!

Can I make a little room
For the green or black legume?
I'm solid with the olive
I'm an eggplant sycophant
Turn up the turnips
Okay the okra, Lift up the limas
Get down with the red beet
MAKE ME A VEGETABLE WRAP

Sweet yams, yes ma'am
new potatoes and tomatoes
Avocado with bravado
They tell me go for celery
That cucumber has my number
I'm eating on some whole wheat
I'm dancing in my bare feet
I'M DOING THE VEGETABLE WRAP
Eat smart, move more.
Eat smart, move more.
