You Are What You Eat

You Are What You Eat / MP3

G / Dm7


   You are what you eat,
   Drink and breathe,
   An all natural,
   Chemical diet,
   Ain't that a riot?

Most of me,
Is made of oxygen?
Say that again,
So, there...
I guess I really am,
Filled with hot air.


For a treat,
How about some carbon?
Would you believe,
That we all,
Have been?


There's hydrogen,
And, nitrogen,
Um... calcium,
And, phosphorus,
In both of us.
It should be evident,
The chemicals present,
In what you eat,
Make you complete.
