Lyrics

Banana Jamma and the Fruity Party

Written By: David Blamires and Lori Cook

Yo, Mon – it’s Banana Jamma - Come and join the Fruity Party!
Here comes Miss Georgia Peach, what a sweetie
And Anna Apple, you are looking rosy today,
Bob Blueberry – relax mon’ you look so blue
Sarah strawberry you look quite chilled
Banana Jamma and the crew say hello and welcome you!

We’re nature’s sweet delicious treat
Groovin’ to a reggae beat
Sweet ----- and delicious
Sweet ------and delicious
And oh-so good to eat.

Verse)
I have a hunch you’ll like us a bunch - have 1 to 2 cups a day
For breakfast, lunch, dinner or - snacks along the way
Fresh, dried or frozen (removed “canned”) – you can have a fruity buffet.
100%, no sugar added - and you’ll have more energy to play.

Chorus
We’re nature’s sweet delicious treat
Groovin’ to a reggae beat
Sweet ----- and delicious
Sweet ------and delicious
And oh so good to eat.

Verse)
We’re sweet or sour at any hour and packed with Vitamin C.
Ummmm we’re juicy and tasty, try us and you’ll agree
Choose bright colors grown from a bush a plant or a tree.
We’ll fill you up and give you loads of feel good energy.

We’re nature’s sweet delicious treat
Groovin’ to a reggae beat
Sweet ----- and delicious
Sweet ------and delicious
And oh-so good to eat.

Fiona Fish and the Lean Machine

Written By: David Blamires and Lori Cook

Don't send me to the fryer, just take me as I am
Sushi, grill, saute me, I'll be your biggest fan
There are other fish in the sea,
but why have them when you can have me . . !

Chorus –
Cause I'm a lean -
Lean machine
Low in fat and high in protein
Terrific taste (yum)
Fantastic flavor (yum)
We’re something hard to replace

Verse)
But if I'm not your type, there are other you can try
Beef, Tofu, and beans, well that I can’t deny
It’s nutty I know, but no matter what way you go –
Have 5-6 ounces a day and you’ll feel like a hero

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental/chatter:
(“take it away beefcakes, how about a little something from the kidney bean quintet?")

Well, we’re a lean (lean)
Lean machine (-chine)
Low in fat and high in protein) protein)
Terrific taste (taste)
Fantastic flavor (yum)
We’re something hard to/you can’t replace

Do, do, do, do . . . .
