  • How come you're always such a fussy young man
    Don't want no Cap'n Crunch, don't want no Raisin Bran
    Well don't you know that other kids are starvin' in Japan
    So eat it, just eat it

    Don't want to argue, I don't want to debate
    Don't want to hear about what kinds of foods you hate
    You won't get no dessert 'till you clean off you're plate
    So eat it

    Don't you tell me you're full
    Just eat it, eat it
    Get yourself an egg and beat it

    Have some more chicken
    Have some more pie
    It doesn't matter
    If it's boiled or fried

    Just eat it, just eat it
    Just eat it, just eat it, Woo!

    Your table manners are a crying shame
    You're playing with your food, this ain't some kind of game
    Now, if you starve to death
    You'll just have yourself to blame
    So eat it. Just eat it.

    You better listen, better do as you're told
    You haven't even touched your tuna casserole
    You better chow down, or it's gonna get cold
    So eat it.

    I don't care if you're full
    Just eat it, eat it
    Open up your mouth and feed it

    Have some more yogurt
    Have some more Spam
    It doesn't matter if it's fresh or canned
    Just eat it! Eat it! Eat it! Eat it!
    Don't you make me repeat it!

    Have a banana, have a whole bunch
    It doesn't matter what you had for lunch

    Just eat it! Eat it!
    Eat it! Eat it!
    Eat it! Eat it!
    If it's getting cold, reheat it

    Have a big dinner.
    Have a light snack
    If you don't like it, you can't send it back

    Just eat it! Eat it!
    Get yourself an egg and beat it!

    Have some more chicken. Have some more pie
    It doesn't matter if it's boiled or fried

    Just eat it! Eat it!
    Don't you make me repeat it! Writer/s: Alfred Matthew Yankovic, Michael Joe Jackson

  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United StatesI love Eggs ::-D lol Yea his lyrics have possibilities that Someone will snatch it, and Use it as thier Baby's name like BELLIE JEAN hahaha. Just kidding
  • Shadow from Depression, VaI think Weird Al should do a parody of Jackson's song "Billie Jean". I've actually come up with a few lyrics. Not putting them on here due to the fact that someone might steal my ideas. This song rocks :D
  • Karen from Manchester, NhWeird Al can do no wrong!
  • Jena from Bonner Springs, KsThe video is hilarious...I love the part where the guitarist blow up at the end of the guitar solo.
  • Liquid Len from Ottawa, CanadaThis was Weird Al's breakthrough where he became a household name. For a month, this was the hottest trendiest thing on the music scene.
