  • Song Lyrics:
    You know I love that organic cooking
    I always ask for more
    And they call me Mr. Natural
    On down to the health food store
    I only eat good sea salt
    White sugar don't touch my lips
    And my friends is always
    Begging me to take them
    On macrobiotic trips
    Yes, they are

    Oh, but at night I take out my strongbox
    That I keep under lock and key
    And I take it off to my closet
    Where nobody else can see
    I open that door so slowly
    Take a peek up north and south
    Then I pull out a Hostess Twinkie
    And I pop it in my mouth

    Yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr. Natural
    Just as healthy as I can be
    But at night I'm a junk food junkie
    Good Lord, have pity on me

    Well, at lunchtime
    You can always find me
    At the Whole Earth Vitamin Bar
    Just sucking on my plain white yogurt
    From my hand thrown pottery jar
    And sippin' a little hand pressed cider
    With a carrot stick for dessert
    And wiping my face
    In a natural way
    On the sleeve of my peasant shirt
    Oh, yeah

    Ah, but when that clock strikes midnight
    And I'm all by myself
    I work that combination
    On my secret hideaway shelf
    And I pull out some Fritos corn chips
    Dr. Pepper and an Ole Moon Pie
    Then I sit back in glorious expectation
    Of a genuine junk food high

    Oh yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr. Natural
    Just as healthy as I can be
    But at night I'm a junk food junkie
    Good Lord, have pity on me

    My friends down at the commune
    They think I'm pretty neat
    Oh, I don't know nothing about arts and crafts
    But I give 'em all something to eat
    I'm a friend to old Euell Gibbons
    And I only eat homegrown spice
    I got a John Keats autographed Grecian urn
    Filled up with my brown rice
    Yes, I do

    Oh, but folks lately I have been spotted
    With a Big Mac on my breath
    Stumbling into a Colonel Sanders
    With a face as white as death
    I'm afraid someday they'll find me
    Just stretched out on my bed
    With a handful of Pringles Potato Chips
    And a Ding Dong by my head

    In the daytime I'm Mr. Natural
    Just as healthy as I can be
    But at night I'm a junk food junkie
    Good Lord, have pity on me

    Not only is this a comment about a few of that ilk but also the lyrics can be adjusted some to apply the insincerity label to religious nut cases. Selah!
