Cornflakes for my breakfast
And pizza for my tea -
But in between, the school dinner.
Oh whatever will it be?
On Monday we have salad
With great big slugs inside.
Most children simply disappear
And run away to hide.
On Tuesday we have sausages;
They’re made from minced up snails -
But to add some crunch and texture,
They add some rusty nails.
On Wednesday - oh, on Wednesday
We eat wriggly, squiggly worms -
But they’re hygienically prepared
So you there are not many germs.
When Thursday comes - oh wait for this -
The menu’s really great:
The leftovers from all the week
Are served up on our plates.
Now Friday’s here: A special treat -
A tasty seaweed stew
And the teachers say: “Come on, eat up,
School meals are good for you.”
