Well it's a time honored tradition
To get enough nutrition
Stay alive until you die and that is the end of you
And I pity the fools
Who don't recognize the rules
You cannot cheat the reaper's reap
And that is the end of that
That is the end of that [Repeat: x3]

Well it's not an old wive's tale
Too much red meat and ale
Will make you pay
Get five a day
Or that is the end of you
And it's a common misconception
