Put the spinach on the bottom 'cause that's where it starts Pull the kalamata olives and the artichoke hearts With ya flax seed waxin' up in here Vinaigrette get it wet all set to disappear Yeah word to the 'shrooms, tell 'em come on down Sprinkle crunchy little gluten-free noodles around Like poetry waitin' in your salad bowl, pretty local-grown veggies make it good for the soul Cucumbers, baby bean sprouts Avocado gets a shout-out With ya pomegranate seeds sprinkled on the top, uh, turnip the BEET so the salad goes POP b-b-BEETZ IN MY SALAD, BEATZ IN MY SALAD... Ozark Natural Foods is the local co-op Their salad bar is bangin', yo, it just don't stop. Check out the fresh garlic and the edamame Like a party on my plate, make my body say, HEY! You know we're rock stars and we're on the road, Don't want no fast food, no truck stop, where is Trader Joe's? or some Whole Foods, where the people care about corn syrup, they don't sell it there. A farmer's market might even be the best freshest local produce, organic and blessed. If you know where you're going, look 'em up online They make a soul say yum yum yum yum everytime. BEETZ IN MY SALAD Think twice about the cans sitting on your shelf. Choose the farm grown berries that you picked yourself. Or take the kids to the market and get them some 'cause our babies need to know where their food comes from! Skip the trip to the supercenter up all night. You know the little local market's gonna do it up right. We got no food if we got no farms so show the farmers some love when you go to get your salad on. We shoppin' in the sun in the market stalls where the fruits and the veggies really got it going on. I'm talking so many colors it'll make your head spin, for a stone soup 'n' salad with your mama an' them. Holla at your girls, Holla at your boys, Everybody bringing' an ingredient of choice. Cuz it's tribe and community that don't stop. Share the food, share the wealth keep the love on top! BEETZ IN MY SALAD Sister, where you at? Hook a sister up! Salad in my face and chia seeds in my cup! Girl, you know we got the world salad flow! Brother, you know we got the world salad flow! BEETZ IN MY SALAD Some of us eat the meat, some of us eat the cheese. Some of us are vegan and gluten free. There's a raw food movement where the veggies go crunch The grains we munch at dinner, snacks and brunch. Lucky us, to have the food that fits our needs But there's something else important and I gotta plant a seed. We cannot write this flow wo telling the truth. There are thousands of people without enough food. Look around the globe, there's a world-wide fight for fair labor, equal pay and equal rights. It's not just far away, it's in our backyard, too Makes me sick that there are people here w/o enough food. No need to feel guilty, just recognize. Find your local food bank and pile the shelves high. "We all become important when we realize our goal should be to figure out our role within the context of the whole." Can I just say that I'm a lucky girl, Grateful and humble, wishing for the world A big salad bar where we call could meet Piling our plates with greens and… BEETZ IN MY SALAD Put the spinach on the bottom cuz that's where it starts Pull the kalamata olives and the artichoke hearts With ya flax seed waxin' up in here vinaigrette get it wet all set to disappear Yeah word to the 'shrooms, tell 'em come on down sprinkle crunchy little gluten-free noodles around like poetry waitin' in your salad bowl, pretty local-grown veggies make it good for the soul Cucumbers, baby bean sprouts Avocado, gets a shout-out Getcha pomegranate seeds sprinkled on the top, uh, turnip the BEET so the salad goes POP!
