To the tune of Oh Danny Boy, lift your fork and belt this out with me:
Oh eat your greens, the greens, the greens are calling
From head to toe they do a body good.
The vitamins and nutrients are flowing.
Tis you, tis you, must eat and I must too.
But come ye back for more greens on your plate.
Some mustard greens, spinach, kale, and chard.
Cholesterol goes down, they help my arteries.
Oh leafy greens, Oh leafy greens, I love you so.
And if you eat your greens with all that fiber,
They help your colon clean out all the junk.
Greens help your bones because they’re full of calcium,
So kneel and thank our God for making greens.
And I shall eat my greens for their B vitamins
That turn to glucose; gives me energy.
Greens boost my vision health. Oh, greens are wonderful.
I’ll simply eat my greens until you come to me.
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Psalm 23:1-3 (NIV)
