Lyrics[edit]

   The ancient pharaohs were not too bright they say,
   But they made one contribution that I live by to this day
   It's the food pyramid and it's approved by the USDA
   
   Whole grains are the foundation, so please take my advice,
   Have five to eleven servings of bread, cereal, or rice
   Three to five of vegetables and four of fruits is best
   Their antioxidants and fiber help you to digest
   Three servings of yogurt, milk, and cheese
   Will help your bones and subsidize the cattle industries
   
   A body needs to grow, and growing takes proteins
   That's why meat can be a tasty treat like fish or human beings
   When you eat your sweets, make sure you try
   To limit your servings, or you'll die
   
   Everybody
   My body is a pyramid that's made of healthy food
   So do what we say,
   (Yeah)
   Eat right every day
   (Food)
   I love you
   
   Buy American

Trivia[edit]

  • In a deleted scene of "Election Blu-Galoo", the episode of Clone High that the song appeared on, there was an extra line of lyrics: "The ancient pharaohs were not too bright they say, / They believed in more than one god, and let the Jews all get away".
