Betty Boop - You gotta eat your spinach baby


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!
