Track Name: The Vegetable Plot (main theme)
The Vegetable Plot

In the middle of the night
With a shuffling sound
In the pale moonlight
We come up from the ground
We’re part of a family
Part of a tribe
We come in all shapes and sizes and colours and types

We are the Vegetable Plot
The vegetable plot
The vegetable plot
Can you hear us grow?
It’s no kind of mystery
No conspiracy
What you reap is what you sow

The Vegetable Plot
The Vegetable Plot
The Vegetable Plot
Can you hear us grow?
My name is Asparagus
And I speak for all of us
When I say we’re happy you came here to see our show

This is Sue Kini
And this is Ru Barb
This is Collie Flower
And this is Rockit lettuce
They’re green and leafy
And we sing so beautifully
And we’re backed up by the freshest, filthiest, rootsiest band in town
BLOW!

One night under the soil
We heard music playing
We poked our heads up to try and find the source
All of a sudden
In a flash of light
We were whisked up into the air by a mysterious force
It was aliens from a place called Wambamboobaloo
In a spaceship on a transgalactic course
They fired their laser beams
And turned us into super beings
In possession of the power of the human voice
Now we’re tired of being stepped on
We’re gonna use music as a weapon
To electrify all the girls and boys

THE VEGETABLE PLOT
THE VEGETABLE PLOT
Here we come ready or not
THE VEGETABLE PLOT
THE VEGETABLE PLOT
Here we come ready or not

From the earth to the sky
We don’t know the reason why
Ask the guys from Wambamboobaloo
What do they do in Wambamboobaloo
I don’t know, I can’t say
I only met those aliens up in space
Space
only met those aliens up in space
Space
only met those aliens up in space
Track Name: Out of the Ground
Out of the ground

Verse 1 (Sue Kini)
Some vegetables take chemicals
To help them grow large
They hang around in science labs
With businessmen in charge
They say “hey hey, take a bite of me baby
I’m so tasty and round”
But me I like em natural
Like they’ve just come out of the ground
Like they’ve just come out of the ground

Verse 2 (Colly Flower)
Some vegetables live on the shelf
In a tin or a can
They never see the light of day
Till they’re put in the pan
They don’t say nuthin
From them you don’t hear no sound
That’s why I like em natural
Like they’ve just come out of the ground
Like they’ve just come out of the ground

Verse 3 (Ru Barb)
I like ‘em fresh and alert
Their little faces all covered in dirt
I like them real, because
We’re made more beautiful by our flaws
I like em the way they are naturally found
Like they’ve just come out of the ground
Like they’ve just come out of the ground

Verse 4 (Rockit Lettuce)
I like ‘em crunchy, woah yeah!
Cos it means there’s lots of good things in there
I like them colourful but not too bright
Their original colour’s just right
Yes I like em the way they are naturally found
Like they’ve just come out of the ground
Like they’ve just come out of the ground
Like they’ve just come out of the ground
Track Name: Avocado
Avocado
Avocado
Eat one in the morning or the arvo
You can eat him on toast or even just plain
He’s good for you body and he’s good for your brain

Avocado
Avocado
Eat one with some lettuce and tomato
He is dark green on the outside, pale green on the in
You can eat all his flesh but do not eat his skin

Avocado
Avocado
I guess you’d say I’m an afficianado
You can eat him with meat, vegetables or beans
You can smush him into paste and rub him on your jeans

Avocado
Avocado
From Amsterdam to Denver Colorado
You can wrap him up in sushi, serve him up with salt
If you eat him up too quick it’s really not his fault

Avocado
Avocado
Worship at his feet like the Mikado
When you scoop out his stone you leave him holy
Mash him in a bowl for guacamole

Avocado
Avocado
Eat him till you’re incommunicado
But wait till he goes squish before you put him on your dish
Cover him in chilli and rub him on a fish
