Junk Food Man
Jay Mankita 2006

Who's makin' money tellin' children lies?
About happy clowns eatin' burgers and fries
Puts the fast food in the children's hand
"Its good for you", says the junk food man. Don't believe the junk food man

They put 10 or 12 teaspoons of sugar in a can
That's the junk food company plan
He puts the can of soda in the childrens' hand
"Its good for you", says the junk food man. Don't believe the junk food man

The junk food man is gonna hook you in - He'll play you kid, just like a violin
And just like drugs or cigarettes, he makes more money the more kids he gets

The junk food man he gets his pay
To tell you lies - lead you astray
Puts the candy in the children's hand
"Its good for you", says the junk food man. Don't believe the junk food man
Junk food man, junk food man, he’ll try to get you if he can…
Junk food man, junk food man, don't believe the junk food man

You spend your money to pay his due
But he's got no respect for you
Puts the fake food in the childrens' hand
"Its good for you", says the junk food man. Don't believe the junk food man

The junk food man is gonna hook you in - He'll play you kid, just like a violin
And just like drugs or cigarettes - He makes more money - the more kids he gets

Who's makin' money tellin' children lies?
About happy clowns eatin' burgers and fries
Puts the children in the company's hand
(Its good for you) says the junk food man - don't believe the junk food man

Hey, you want this toy? It's the real McCoy
You'll just have to eat more junk food, boy
Got your playground here – and your action gear
Watch your money disappear
More shakes and pies, more burgers and fries
Eat that junk food, swallow those lies
