Vegetarian
Vegetarian
Vegetarian

I, I don't want tofu
I'd rather have a mouthful of beef stew
I don't wanna be a vegetarian
Why eat beans when you can have steak instead?

I don't feel bad about
Eating something that's dead
Why should I be sad
For cows getting hit in the head?

So I like eating fish
Tell me what's wrong with this
How can you blame me
For eating chicken of the sea?

Vegetarian

Don't waste your breath yelling at me
About animal rights
And how they should be free
'Coz it's survival of the fittest
And we're winning

I don't feel bad about
Eating something that's dead
So why should I be sad
For chickens being force fed

So I like eating fish
Tell me what's wrong with this
How can you blame me
For eating chicken of the sea?

Vegetarian
Go fry an egg

    General CommentIt's pretty funny because Fat Mike is now a vegetarian, as are other band members. You'd definately call him a "peace punk" too. He grew up, became a little more socially conscious. That's a good thing.

    General CommentWasn't this song written when like NOFX was still pretty underground and it became like trendy to be veggie in underground punk scene even outside the hardcore and the anarcho scene, eeeh, maybe it still is... but it's rather a reaction against people in the punkscene and at the time like forcing people to be exactly like than to vegetarians.

    General Commenti was so pissed off when i heard this song (im a vegetarian) cuz i love nofx so it was dissappointing to me, but then i remembered in a more recent song, Franco-Unamerican, they say "I never thought about the universe, it made me feel small, never thought about the problems of this planet at all, global warming, radioactive sites, imperialistic wrongs and ANIMAL RIGHTS." they've changed since they said "dont waste your breath yelling at me about animal rights" haha

    General CommentI'm a vegetarian because I hate meat (the taste and texture and shit) not because I really care about animals dying, even though I don't agree with treating any living thing like total shit. But that's not why I follow the lifestyle I do. Vegetarianism is healthier as well partially because you avoid all the hormones pumped into the fucking animals.

    The only reason I don't like this song is because it seems ignorant to me to assume everyone has the same reason for doing something. They just assume that vegetarians would otherwise like meat and are animal rights activists. Not always the case.
