Beef what a relief

When will this poisonous product cease?

This is another public service announcement

You can believe it or you can doubt it

Let us begin now with the cow

The way it gets to your plate and how

The cow doesn't grow fast enough for man

So through his greed he makes a faster plan

He has drugs to make the cow grow quicker

Through the stress the cow gets sicker

Twenty one different drugs are pumped

Into the cow in one big lump

So just before it dies, it cries

In the slaughterhouse full of germs and flies

Off with the head, they pack it, drain it, and cart it

And there it is, in your local supermarket

Red and bloody, a corpse, neatly packed

And you wonder about heart attacks?

Come on now man let's be for real

You are what you eat is the way I feel

But, the Food and Drug Administration

Will tell you meat is the perfect combination

See cows live under fear and stress

Trying to think what's gonna happen next

Fear and stress can become a part of you

In your cells and blood, this is true

So when the cow is killed, believe it

You preserve those cells, you freeze it

Thaw it out with the blood and season it

Then you sit down and begin eatin it

In your body, it's structure becomes your structure

All the fear and stress of another

Any drug is addictive by any name

Even drugs in meat, they are the same

The FDA has America strung out

On drugs in beef no doubt

So if you think that what I say is a bunch of crock

Tell yourself you're gonna try and stop

Eatin meat and you'll see you can't compete

It's the number one drug on the street

Not crack, cause that was made for just black

But brown beef,
