lyrics

Tomato Tomato
I love them a lot tho
fresh picked off the vine
like I just won the lotto

for salsa with nachos
I’ll have the gazpacho
if flavors the game
then tomato’s the motto

raw in a salad
the texture be Poppin
firm and acidic
a bruschetta topping

cook it up,
elevate the lycopene
bringing healthy antioxidants
to that thermal processing

sauce, soup, shakshouka be steaming
scrambled with eggs, from China to Egypt
tomatoes are global, watch the yellow flower bloom
save up those seeds, grow them heirloom

AND yes you can!
can your tomato
preserve them for the winter
make chili volcanos

mixin in the basil,
that's a companion plant
when you grow them side by side
pests abandon their plans


HOOK

tomatoes are a berry
but they stay savory
are they a veggie or a fruit? historical controversy

in 1893 tax laws put them on the veggie list
but we all know... veggies don’t exist

OR let's say veggies are vegetation that's edible
that's a tomato,—a fruit, so incredible

ripe in many colors
the variety don’t lack
they be yellow, orange, green, white and black

thank the veggie gods when u see them on the plate
pop a tiny cherry or slice a giant beefsteak

romas for the nonas, they already know
when u fixin up a sauce grow san Marzano
let me marry into this marinara flow
mmm spread it on the pizza dough

OH TOMATO
I love them all I can’t decide
I could eat them grilled, or even sun-dried

why’d you eat the leaves? they're toxic!
smelling like the fruit, make you wonder why you got sick
in the tropics, all year they grow mad free
aint about tomatoes? don’t throw them at me
