Name

You Gotta Eat Your Spinach Baby











You Gotta Eat Your Spinach Baby

Lyrics:

Ya gotta eat your spinach baby,

That's the proper thing to do.

It'll keep ya kinda healthy too,

And what it did for Popeye,

It'll do for you.

Ya gotta eat your spinach baby,

To give ya lots of TMT.

For when ever your caressing me,

Then you'll need every vitamin from A to Z.

Please take my advice,

Kissing is dangerous the doctors all agree.

Please take my advice,

Don't ever kiss anybody but me.

Ya gotta eat your spinach baby,

If you do you can't go wrong.

For it's gonna make you nice and strong,

And the stronger you are,

The longer you'll live,

And the longer I'll have to love you.

I wanted things to be rosey,

Your lips the color of wine.

Darling the way that people will say that,

My, what your looking so fine,

If you wanna be like I want you to be.

Follow this carefully,

Ya gotta eat your spinach baby,

That's the proper thing to do,

It'll keep ya kinda healthy too.

* Imitating Popeye

And what it did for Popeye it'll do for you!

Whoa, ya gotta eat your spinach baby,

To give you lots of TMT.

For when ever your caressing me,

Then you'll need every vitamin from A to Z.

Oh, please take my advice,

Kissing is dangerous the doctors all agree,

Please take my advice.

And don't ever kiss anybody but me,

Ya gotta eat your spinach baby.

If you do you can't go wrong,

For it's gonna make you nice and strong.

And the stronger you are,

The longer you'll live,

And the longer I'll have to love you.

Bop!
