Good Food

By Ying (2005), with apologies to "Footloose" by Kenny Loggins (written by Kenny Loggins/Dean Pitchford, 1984)

Been searching, alarmed
Want lunch from a farm
Ate our "rainbow"
It weren't no pot of gold
It's not appealing
This protein's barely choked down
Our tongues are reeling
It even made Kaylee froooown!

So now we really want food

CHORUS:
Good food
Knock off the protein stew
Please, hot cheese, plus some ripe strawberRIES
Ack, more packs, protein just ain't no snack
Soup not goop, everybody wants good food

Meal's plain, ain't top-notch
Ol' Jayne says smells like crot—  non-rosemary
Let's go down to the mart
Get purdy birdies or some—
Something that once went "moo"
For steak or sandwich on rye
We're tired of cooked goo
We want grenade-free apple piiiie
Or sp'fries*

Yeah we really want food

CHORUS:
Good food
Knock off the protein stew
Oo-wee turKEY, make it, make it for me
Whoa, manGOES, want grub, want grub that grows
Soup not goop, everybody wants good food

(Oh-whoa-oh-oh) Want good food
(Oh-whoa-oh-oh) Want good food
(Oh-whoa-oh-oh) Want good food
Ooooh

(First) We take this herd full of cows
(Second) We use some meat for fresh bao
(Third) Then grab a plate or a bowl
Aaaah aaaah aaaah aaaah
Hey, beagle might do!

CHORUS:
Good food
Knock off the protein stew
Please, hot cheese, plus Shep's salad for me
Ack, more packs, protein just ain't no snack
Soup not goop, everybody wants good food

CHORUS:
(Good food) Good food
Knock off the protein stew
Please, hot cheese, plus some ripe strawberRIES
Ack, more packs, protein just ain't no snack
Soup not goop

Everybody wants, everybody wants
Everybody wants, everybody wants
Everybody wants, everybody wants
(Everybody) Everybody wants good food!

*Sp'fries would be "space [French] fries" [based on the playful sp-'s on the Firefly DVD audio commentaries].
