A lot of people don't bother about their friends in the vegetable kingdom
They think
Er what can I say?
What can a person like myself say to a vegetable?
But the answer is simple, my friends
Just call
And tell them how you feel
About muffins
Wax paper
Caledonia, mahoganies, elbows and green things in general
And soon a new rapport
You and your new little green and yellow buddies
Grooving together
Oh no
Maintaining your coolness together
Worshipping together in the church of your choice
Only in America

Call any vegetable
Call it by name
Wah you gotta call one today
When you get off the train
Call any vegetable
And the chances are good
Aah that the vegetable
Will respond to you
Oh no
Can you see them responding?
The pumpkin is breathing hard

What a pumpkin
