Sing a Song

The Good Food Song
(Tune: "Old McDonald Had a Farm")

Vegetables are good for me,
EE I EE I O
And so I eat them happily,
EE I EE I O
With a carrot, carrot here,
and a carrot, carrot there
Here a carrot, there a carrot
Everywhere a carrot, carrot.
Vegetables are good for me,
EE I EE I O.
