The Bribe

Mom don't feed me veggies Don't put them on my dish French fries and a hot dog Is now my only wish Mayonnaise smothered Tater-Tots Sure would do the trick Peas Broccoli, spinach too Just will make me sick Carrots, I can't stand them Oh please, for goodness sake Don't hide them in a muffin Or in some kind of cake Don't add them to my juice And think it's gonna fly I said I don't like veggies I'm telling you no lie I'm glad you're being sensible In honoring my wish I also won't eat liver or any kind of fish Sure, I'd like some candy Perhaps a slice of pie Ok, If I have too I'll give this vegg a try
