My great grandma Martha
She mashed her food up in a bowl
Whatever meal was intended
She always ate a casserole

We had the government cheese
And a tube of liver worst
My mom said that we should try it
I said that she should try it first

You are an animal boy
Your mouth is open all the time
Why are you never not hungry
You think it's always dinner time

My brother was a method eater
He studied long into the night
When all the dishes were done drying
He had not taken his first bite

We had a vegetable garden
Twice as big as our house
And six of seven types of fruit trees
We hardly ever ate out

You are an animal boy
Your mouth is open all the time
Why are you never not hungry
You think it's always dinner time

I've started making my own smoothies
Buying bananas by the ton
All the way from Costa Rica
Cause you can't grow them in the Texas sun

My ancestors grew something
Real food is all I know
We�re gonna grow a little boy
Just like 100 years ago

You are an animal boy
Your mouth is open all the time
Why are you never not hungry
You think it's always dinner time
You think it's always dinner time
Yeah it's always dinner time

    General CommentMatt really makes some wonderful music. Most, including this one, are pretty straight forward.

    General CommentOh, and the first line is "My great grandma Martha", not mother.
