The ancient pharaohs were not too bright, they say
But they made one contribution that I live by to this day
It's the food pyramid, and it's approved by the U.S.D.A.

Oh, grains are the foundation, so please take my advice
Have five to eleven servings of bread, cereal, or rice
Three to five of vegetables, and four of fruits is best
Their anti-oxidants and fiber help you to digest
Three servings of yogurt, milk, and cheese
Will help your bones and subsidize the cattle industry

A body needs to grow
And growing takes proteins
That's why meat can be a tasty treat
Like fish or human beings
And when you eat your sweets, make sure you try
To limit your servings, or you'll DIE!


My body is a pyramid that's made of healthy food
So do what we say (yeah)
Eat right every day (food)
I love you

Buy American!

    Ha. So true. We're all force-fed ideas such as milk makes your bones stronger and if you do not follow the food pyramid, you will DIE! It's all a big crock, as the song points out...
    And I think this song was pre-Marilyn Manson (Spooky Kids).

    General CommentOk first of all; It was NEVER The Spooky Kids. It has always been Marilyn Manson. Mind you it was Marilyn Manson and The Spooky Kids. Seconed He didn't write this song so it really has no meaning behind it. It's just a song about the food pyramid that Clone High asked him to sing. The episode was about one of the characters eatting nothing but sweets and getting fat and sick. Manson was just there to teach him about the food pyramid and why he shouldn't eat such things. That is the end of my comment. MORONS!!!!!!!!!!!!
