Facts:
  • From the 1970 album LEFTOVER WINE (which was recorded live at Carnegie Hall). (sav-man)
  • This pro-vegetarianism song reinforced the hippie notion that everything had to be "organic," including one's diet. (sav-man)
  • Song Lyrics:
    I was just thinking about the way it's supposed to be
    I'll eat the plants and the fruit from the trees
    And I'll live on vegetables and I'll grow on seeds
    But I don't eat animals and they don't eat me
    Oh no, I don't eat animals 'cause I love them, you see
    I don't eat animals; I want nothing dead in me

    I don't eat white flour; white sugar makes you rot
    Oh, white could be beautiful but mostly it's not
    A little bit of whole meal, some raisins and cheese
    But I don't eat animals and they don't eat me
    Oh no, I don't eat animals 'cause I love them, you see
    I don't eat animals; I want nothing dead in me

    A little bit of whole meal, some raisins and cheese
    I'll eat the plants and the fruit from the trees
    And I'll live on vegetables and I'll grow on seeds
    But I won't eat animals and they won't eat me
    Oh no, I'll live on life; I want nothing dead in me
    You know I'll become life and my life will become me
    You know I'll live on life and my life will live on me
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
