Written in the middle of the foot and mouth crisis, this is not meant to convert anyone who doesn’t wish to be converted.


Times are hard, times are tough
It's time for change, we've had enough
Let me say, there's a way,
To improve your every day
It's a simple recipe,
It suits the way I like to be
You know life can be so sweet,
When you don't eat meat.

Please don't cut that throat for me,
I'll eat mushroom fricassee
Wheat and corn, you ain't born,
Till you've tried some home fried quorn
Steamed or stuffed, creamed or puffed
Glazed or braised, ain't that enough
Veg can be a treat, when you don't eat meat.

Mister butcher, spare that lamb,
Please don’t turn that pig to ham
We can solve all farming's ills,
If we stick to pasta quills

There's no need for blood and murder,
Just chomp on this nice bean burger
And here's a baby beet, don't eat meat.

Boil that rice, oh that's nice,
Pancakes you could just eat twice
An aubergine, a butter bean,
Something green, I feel so clean
Mangoes, apples, melons, limes,
Add the good fruit of the vines
It's all great to eat, bin the meat

Let's let lambs baa and bleat,
Don't mince up that udder teat
Cows and calves don't eat meat,
So why do we, let me repeat
There's a simple remedy,
So why don't you join with me
And life could be so neat
Don't eat meat
