It's A Green, Green, Green, Green World



It’s  Green, Green, Green, Green World
(The Brassica Song)


By: the hardest-working vegetable in the kitchen

This is a green world, this is a green world
But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing without some cauliflower or kale

You see, greens make the vitamins to keep us on the right road
Greens make the fiber to carry heavy loads
Greens make carotenoids so we can see in the dark
Greens make the selenium, and lutein for our hearts

This is a green’s, a green's, a green's world
But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing without a broccoli rabe

Green thinks about little baby collards and baby brussels sprouts
Green makes us happy 'cause green strikes cancer out
And after green has made everything, everything it can
You know that green makes them taste good with a little bit of ham

This is a green world
But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing without a cabbage or a kohlrabi floret

We’re lost in the wilderness
We’re lost in bitterness
