White Sugar

Growing up on the hippy commune I loved to dance and bounce around to music. I think most kids enjoy this. One song in particular stuck in my head for years and recently I read the lyrics and smiled. I call it the vegetarian kids' anthem.

White Sugar (imagine it to eighties pop music - like Madonna, Eurythmics, or Talking Heads)

Oh, I like white sugar and I'll tell you why. It gives
me a buzz, and that's no lie. One of my favorite
drugs, it makes me high.
Some people sit around and call it white death while
they themselves are eating dead animal flesh! What
does it matter that I'm eating white sugar when the
nuclear plants, they're committing mass murder! Oh I
like the taste of honey but it cost too much money,
without a little sugar all my food taste funny!
I like white sugar cuz its good and sweet. I like
white sugar cuz when its good and cheap. I love white
sugar. It's good to eat. I wish everyone could eat
white sugar instead of meat. Its only beets!
Oh, I could eat fudge yummies til I fall on the floor
and when I woke up I would come back for more. Algunos
lo llaman la merta blanca mientras los mismis comen
animalses muertos! Oh no! Gimme a buzz, gimme a white
sugar buzz!
