I have had this song stuck in my head since I was a kid!
Sometime in the late 80s (maybe early 90s) there was a kids PSA with singing / rapping about how you should eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. There are a few kids dancing to the music while eating veggies and fruits. The set and costumes are all white, I think. The camera is handheld and tilted / zoomed a lot, in the style I later came to associate with MTV.
Here are all the lyrics I remember:
"One - (now thats a) good start And Two - and you KNOW this part,
You're working on having fun with food cause animals love 'em, and so do you! (a monkey is in the scene here)
Now Three - And we're almost there, For Four - You may need a chair! (kid climbs on chair to reach bowl of fruit on the table)
But that's okay, we'll get there soon, You can have them while you rock a tune. (here a kid wearing sunglasses listening to a walkman plays air drums)
...Five veggies and fruits from morning til night!
...They come from places both far and near!
Now five a day is the magic rule, More is okay, less is uncool." (ends with kid walking away holding hands with the monkey)
Every six months or so, I search the internet looking for an MP3 or video of this PSA, with no luck so far. Can anyone help?
I've seriously had this song stuck in my head since 2nd grade! I can't believe you remember so much of it - amazing! I look for it on YouTube all the time and I can never find it. I'm happy to know it actually exists, though. None of my friends remember it. If you find the video, will you PLEASE post a link or send it to me at [email protected]?? Thanks!
