Consumers, here's some news for you
We don't like chemical residue
Forget those things the experts say
There's poisons in your five-a-day

We need not focus on the facts
It's justified 'cause EPA's too lax
We'll invent ourselves a "scare-of-the-day"
As we plant some seeds of political hay
We've got a bumper crop of political hay

We don't let science get in our way
We need no journals to share our views
As long as we get on Headline News

We've got a bumper crop of political hay
Our real target is the EPA
Consumer fears, we'll raise a few
And we don't give a hoot about peer review

We'll say your kids are like Snow White
They might get sick from just one bite
We'll say we're helping Mom and Dad
And if their kids don't eat, that's just too bad

We'll harvest up some scary fears
That tug on hearts and lead to tears
And with those tears we'll find a way
To irrigate our crop of hay

CHORUS:
We've got a bumper crop of political hay
We don't let science get in our way
We need no journals to share our views
As long as we get on Headline News

We've got a bumper crop of political hay
Our real target is the EPA
Consumer fears, we'll raise a few
And we don't give a hoot about peer review
