Broccoli Tree

So Pie hates broccoli, even when we try and pretend they are mini trees he just will not even entertain the idea (I have to say I am totally with him but tell Mr P) so in tribute to my boy I have taken one of his favourite songs and attempted a broccoli themed parody! Enjoy Broccoli: Never In Style,  to Taylor Swifts’ ‘Style’:

 

Teatime, You ask me to wash my hands before I eat mine.

It looks fine, but this could end in tears or paradise

This could be new, oh, it’s been a while since I have even tasted you (tasted you)

I am begging you please’cause you

Know exactly where it leads but

We have to go ’round and ’round each time

Give me my baked beans, ice cream and things that I like

Not those green stalked broccoli trees that are vile

And when I go into meltdown, every lunch and tea time

‘Cause broccoli is to vile

I’ll never eat it with a smile.

Its got that long stalk, greenness, and tastes like dirt

Don’t put it near my face or I will spit it on your skirt

And when I go into meltdown, every lunch and teatime

‘Cause broccoli is to vile

I’ll never eat it with a smile

He we go…

You can’t make me eat that, it smells like a toad!

I start to groan

Gloves are off, do you have to gloat?

You say, “I heard, oh, that you’ve been following new rules, eating this at school.”

I say, “What you’ve heard is true but I

I am not eating this for you,” and I…

You say, “We’ve been here, too, a few times.”

    1. You just can’t beat a bit of Taytay! Love her and inflict her on the children regularly! Thanks for commenting x

    1. Yes another convert to #broxit! (I don’t know if I can believe you don’t know the original!) Thanks for hosting x

  1. I had to look up the original too, because I’m old and uncool. πŸ™‚ The Popple actually really likes broccoli – I wonder how long that’s going to last. I’m guessing she’ll be over it by the time she’s a toddler. #chucklemums

    1. Ah the Popple is a good girl – lets hope she continues to be happy eater – thanks for commenting x

    1. These poor babies that have to try broccoli – I feel for them πŸ˜‰ Taylor Swift rocks ha ha (I never said I was cool) Thanks for commenting x

  2. ‘Don’t put it near my face or I’ll spit it on your skirt’ made me laugh lots. I don’t blame Pie for not liking broccoli, Mother needn’t even contemplate it for me either πŸ˜‰ #chucklemums

    1. Pie is so right – Mum tried it with me, I was having none of it. Join us in the #broxit camp! Thanks for commenting x

  3. I love this! I’m going to find myself singing about broccoli when I hear it now! But I actually love broccoli. Say no to #broxit #tribalchat

    1. Argh your still in the vote yes camp even after my best powers of persuasion – still if you could sing this round Sainsbury’s I might be able to recruit a few more members! x

  4. Hahaha amazing! The only way I can get it into my two is to blather it in cheese sauce. (But yes – it still smells like a toad!) Brilliant post. Thank you for sharing it with us at #passthesauce x

    1. Nothing can erase that toad smell – Pie is suspicious of anything that comes in a sauce, after I tried to persuade him that courgette ribbons were pasta – he has never forgvien me… Thanks for commenting and co-hosting x
