Tasty Plants
Parody of "The Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats
(Genesis 9:2-3, Romans 14:2-3, Acts 10:9-16, 1 Timothy 4:3-5, Mark 7:19, 1 Corinthians 10:25-31, Colossians 2:16)

Yes they just eat greens why? Taste plants!

Eat some plants if you want to
You can eat yours then eat mine
'Cause your friends want plants and meat they won't chance
Well, there's -- no sense in tryin'
I said, we can grow veggie fun foods
A taste they say is just divine
And we can act like it's something out of this world
And leafy greens are hard to find
And eat some plants

Eat some plants if you want to
With your vegan friends online
'Cause your friends post anti-carnivorous rants
Well, then don't censor mine
I say, we can go where we want to
The places they will never dine
And if we like stuff that comes from cows and fish, birds
And even pigs God doesn't mind
And eat some plants (Mangez!)

We can do what we want to
Lots of yummy foods to try
And we could just eat meat but our hearts have to beat
So we might not want that big rib-eye
I say, eat some kelp if you want to
If you don't nobody will
And you can actually prove that tofu is a food
And eat the moss on your window sill
And say

Eat some plants, eat some plants
Get your greens out of a bowl
Eat some plants, eat some plants
But food isn't for your soul
Eat some plants, eat some plants
7:19 Mark will enhance
Eat some plants, eat some plants

Everybody's takin' a stance
Tasty plants
Oh, the tasty plants
Yes, the tasty plants

Yes they just eat greens why? Taste plants!

Read in Acts if you want proof
Read what 10:15 describes
And Romans 14:2-3, then we've got a doozy
First Timothy 4:3-5
I say, read some rants if you want to
You can ignore Genesis 9
Because your friends don't fancy things the Lord says
And there's no sense in tryin'

I say
Eat some plants, eat some plants
Ever think out of the bowl?
Eat some plants, eat some plants
Yeah, food isn't for your soul
Eat some plants, eat some plants
Check in First Corinthians 10
Eat some plants, eat some plants
25 and straight through the end

And will you take a glance
At what 2:16 says
In Coloss-i-ans
Oh, it's a great defense
For when we face your friends
Who love their tasty plants, yeah
Well, the tasty plants
Yes, tasty plants
It's tasty plants
It's tasty plants
It's tasty plants
It's tasty plants

Romans 14:2-3
One person's faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is
weak, eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with
contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must
not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them.
