Eating is Fun, Eating is Serious
Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Patricia Shih

Eating is fun, eating is serious
You eat too much, you're gonna get delirious
Eat too little, you're gonna disappearious
Now eating is fun, eating is so, so serious

Now I've been told you gotta eat nutritious
But I'd rather nibble on something that's delicious
Chew a chewing gum or lick a stick of licoricious
That makes eating fun, yeah yeah
But if that's all that I ever had to eat
I'd have a tummy ache and I wouldn't have any teeth
So once in awhile I eat veggies and meat
That's when eating gets serious!


Now I like the games you can play with gravy
But when I play with food it makes my mama crazy
Feed my dinner to the dog and dog food to the baby
That makes eating fun! Yeah yeah
But my mama says that wasting food's a crime
There's so many people who don't eat most the time
So if they don't have spinach, I'll send them mine
That's when eating gets serious


Mama's little baby loves shortnin' shortnin'
Mama's little baby loves shortnin' bread
Mama's little baby loves shortnin' shortnin'
Mama's little baby loves shortnin' bread


Ice cream, nectarines, pork 'n' beans, tangerines
MilkyWays, hollandaise, sundaes anyways
French fries, pizza pies, turkey thighs, ham-on-ryes
Make eating fun, yeah yeah
But mung beans, collard greens, caffeine, haute cuisine
Fingernails, cow entrails, garlic covered sauteed snails
Tofu, caribou, any food that's turning blue
That's eating serious!


Eating is fun, eating is so, so, so, so, SO SERIOUS!
