Too Much Food
by Jason Mraz



You can say that I'm a one curly fry in the box of the regular
Messin' with the flavor or the flavor that you see
But savin' me for last but you better not eat me at all
Livin' in a fast food bag, makin' friends with the ketchup and salt
People say that I'm crazy for not movin' on to better things
Still I'm sittin' around trash-talkin' with an onion ring
But it's much too soon to leave this easy life
Pass me the spoon, pass the analytical knife

Cause you're about to get
Cut up or get cut down
iI's all about the wordplay,
All about the sound
And my tone of voice,
You gotta let me make my choice alone
Before my food gets cold
Better shut up or get shot down
It's all about the know-how,
Or just a matter of taste
Stop tellin' me the way i gotta play it now,
Too much food on my plate

Well believe it or not, I'm super-sized
My sights are no surprise
In a cereal box, my stomach's smaller than my eyes
So I went to see a doctor, he said turn my head and then cough
I didn't listen to what he said,
Instead I couldn't wait to get off
He said I can have this but I can't have that
I should keep wishing I was living the life of a cat but uh
I ain't the one who's gonna be missin' the feast
Just like you ain't the one who seems to becomin' the beast

But you're about to get
Cut up or get cut down
iI's all about the wordplay,
All about the sound
And my tone of my voice,
You gotta let me make my choice alone
Before my food gets cold
Better shut up or get shot down
It's all about the know-how,
Or just a matter of taste
Stop tellin' me the way that I gotta play,
You're puttin' too much food on my plate, come on

Oh my
senses

Well if you are what you eat,
In my case, i'll be sweet
so come and get some
I'm sooo over it

Cause you're about to get
Cut up or get cut down
It's all about the know-how,
Or just a matter of taste
Stop tellin' me the way that I gotta play
You're putting too much food on my plate, come on

Get up to get get it get down
Get up to get get it get down
Get up to get get it up
Oh come on
Get up get up get up
Come on
Get up to get get it get some
Get up to get get it get some
Get up to get get it get some
There's too much food on my plate, come on

yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
come on, come on, come on, come on
ya ya ya ya
