  • Song Lyrics:
    How come you're always such a fussy young man,
    Don't want no Captain Crunch, don't want no Raisin Bran,
    Well don't you know that other kids are starving in Japan,
    So eat it, just eat it.

    Don't want to argue, I don't want to debate
    Don't want to hear about what kind of food you hate.
    You won't get no dessert till you clean off your plate.
    So eat it.

    Don't tell me you're full

    Just eat it, eat it,
    Get yourself an egg and beat it.
    Have some more chicken, have some more pie
    It doesn't matter if it's broiled or fried
    Just eat it, eat it, just eat it, eat it,
    Just eat it, eat it, just eat it, eat it.

    Your table manners are a crying shame
    You're playin' with your food, this ain't some kind of game.
    Now if you starve to death you'll just have yourself to blame.
    So eat it, just eat it.

    You better listen, better do what you're told,
    You haven't even touched your tuna casserole,
    You better chow down or it's gonna get cold,
    So eat it.

    I don't care if you're full

    Just eat it, eat it.
    Open up your mouth and feed it.
    Have some more yogurt, have some more Spam,
    It doesn't matter if it's fresh or canned

    Just eat it, eat it
    Don't you make me repeat it.
    Have a banana, have a whole bunch,
    It doesn't matter what you had for lunch
    Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it,
    eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it.

    Just eat it, eat it,
    If it's getting cold, reheat it
    Have a big dinner, have a light snack,
    If you don't like it you can't send it back.

    Just eat it, eat it,
    Get yourself an egg and beat it.
    Have some more chicken, have some more pie
    It doesn't matter if it's broiled or fried

    Just eat it, eat it,
    Don't you make me repeat it.
    (Captain Wayne)
