(Give Us) Real Things

(To the tune of “Coke®. It’s the Real Thing”) / Recording by David Simmons

I’d like to teach my students ‘bout
some biochemistry
To keep them all from drinking Coke
and make them trans fat free

There’d be no taking creatine
to help them run so fast
And Sucralose and Nutrasweet
would be things of the past

I’d lower fructose levels in
the junk that people eat
And salmon farmed, then colored up
I’d work hard to defeat

Organic food is good for you
everybody knows
So let’s get rid of factory farms
and all the GMOs

Give us real things
Some for you, some for me
Biochem’s good you see
Give us real things
