I Won’t Eat That

I like peanut butter and jelly,
And I like mac ‘n’ cheese.
I like it when we order pizza,
Pizza Movers, if you please.
I like quesadillas,
And rice and beans I’ve tried.
I’ll even eat potatoes,
French fried potatoes,
With chicken nuggets on the side.

But I won’t eat that,
No, I won’t eat that.
And I don’t care if the world turns flat,
But I won’t eat that.

I like blueberry muffins,
And I like chocolate cake.
I like turkey with stuffing;
Some more, please, for goodness’ sake!
When Daddy makes lasagne,
I always shout “hooray!”
But this looks kinda sticky,
And, anyway, it’s icky,
And that’s the reason that I say:

No, I won’t eat that,
No, I won’t eat that.
And I don’t care if the world turns flat,
But I won’t eat that.

You say, “Here comes the choo-choo,”
But the tunnel stays closed;
Try to get it in me with a garden hose.
You get on your knees,
And you make a sad face.
I’ll do almost anything to
Get you off my case …

But I won’t eat that,
No, I won’t eat that.
And I don’t care if the world turns flat,
But I won’t eat that.

No, I won’t eat that,
No, I won’t eat that.
And I don’t care if the world turns flat;
I don’t care if I never get fat;
I don’t care, I don’t care,
But I won’t eat that!
