Don't Eat The Blue Food

 
Don't Eat the Blue Food
Words and music by Dave. Recorded live at Eddie's Attic in Decatur, Georgia.
 
This number was inspired by my kids, who seem drawn to the unnaturally blue color of foods containing FD&C Blue Number 1. This food additive, made originally from coal and now from petroleum, has been linked to hyperactivity in children and was banned in many parts of Europe. I believe it! My youngest child gets crazy when she eats a moderate amount of something with Blue No. 1 in it. The stuff makes me feel ill.
 
Don't Eat the Blue Food has been one of my more popular songs, but I find myself trying to avoid playing it if I want the audience to take me seriously. But as you can tell from this recording, when it goes over well, audiences love it.
Don't Eat The Blue Food

 ©2006 by David Langford Smith
Kids are running around
bouncing off the walls
Got the sofa cushions
strewn down the hall
 
Jumpin on the bed
won't turn out the light
say they're gonna stay
up and play all night
 
They ate the blue food
Don't eat the blue food
Have you noticed that nature's mother
Doesn't make very much food that color
They ate the blue food
Don't eat the blue food
 
Super man ice cream
has that brilliant blue
It enters your bloodstream
and stains your tissue
 
The blue icing goo
on the birthday cake
tasted like glue
and made my tummy ache
 
I ate the blue food
Don't eat the blue food
Have you noticed that nature's mother
Doesn't make very much food that color
I ate the blue food
Don't eat the blue food
 
It's made from petroleum
and all I know
is some doctors are convinced
it makes kids hyperactive
 
The material safety data sheet
for blue number 1
says toxicology isn't complete
It may cause gene mutation
 
An 11-year-old child
In a hospital in the city
was given too much blue food
It make her skin cyanitic
 
They gave her the blue food
Don't let them give you the blue food
Have you noticed that nature's mother
Doesn't make very much food that color
They gave her the blue food
Don't let them give you the blue food
