Instead of meat I eat veggies and pussy
I like them both fresh, like them both juicy
I ride my bicycle to work instead of a car
All of my groceries are divided by weight and stored in glass jars (Yeah)
Got my reusable bag
That swag, my flex, my flag
Zero waste, that is my jam
Save fuel and sell your truck
The karma comes for free and so does luck
All aboard the green Titanic
Let's sail the world and then cruise the Atlantic
No ice in the way, no need to panic
All the signs are there, let's go organic

Oh, when you eat your veggies
Baby, think of me
Little kitty, don't you know that
Being green is cool?

Know that being green is hot (It's hot)
Being green is cool (It's cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as fuck
Being green is hot (It's hot)
Being green is cool (It's cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as you

Ring, ring, God damn, it's an exam (Let's go)
Get your trash can, no back-up plan and sort through it
Bend over, then jiggle that peach (Ayy)
You recyclin' while I'm loving those cheeks (That's sweet)
I'm a beast instead of a killer, forget the hot dogs (What)
'Cause my sausage is bigger
Three, two, one, all the girls go eco
If you want your man's tongue longer than a gecko's

Oh, when you eat your veggies
Baby, think of me
Little kitty, don't you know that
Being green is cool?

Know that being green is hot (It's hot)
Being green is cool (It's cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as fuck
Being green is hot (It's hot)
Being green is cool (It's cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as you

Know that being green is hot (It's hot)
Being green is cool (It's cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as fuck
Being green is hot (It's hot)
Being green is cool (It's cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as

Na-na-na-na-na-na

I wonder if the EBU says something about „eating the pussy“. Remember when they threatened Alf Poier with disqualification if he‘d put his hand between his feet? At the time they insited that ESC was a „family-show“. Cunnilingus seems tombe rather not a familyshow-topic. :LOL:
That was nearly 20 years ago. In 2022, cunnilingus is family entertainment.

To be honest, I‘m not playing the song when the kiddo is around. I don’t think it’s appropriate yet I find the lyrics funny, fresh and saucy in a good way. My son doesn’t watch Eurovision (yet) but yes, I would feel a bit uncomfortable with, if he did.

Apart from that, it’s also a good and entertaining song! As I have written a while ago, the dance and part of the sounds are basically a rip-off of Belgium 2016 which did surprisingly well and made it to the final. I really liked Belgium 2016 so I hope there‘s a little chance they‘ll make it to the GF.

How old is your son if it's not a secret?

I´m giving this :3: points.

I don´t really enjoy this but....I do get some flashes of my childhood where I watch 90´s or early 00´s movies.

I guess that is what makes it an effective throwback act and I´ll give it points for that.

But other than instilling memories, this does nothing more for me.

Either the lyrics are a half arsed attempt of trying to use being green as an euphemism for unprotected or oral capers, or the words are an attempt in trying to make being green sexy and coming across as pervy.

Unfortuantely I don't pay attention to lyrics when rating my song so it's in my top 10...

Music vid (will probably be on EBU-channel soon too)

Such a fun vid, and this song starts to grow on me quite a lot. Might become the grower of the season perhaps! :eek:

I have commented on several songs from 2022 but this is the first time I have commented on the song from Latvia. Personally, I like "Eat Your Salad" and I also appreciate the energy of Citi Zeni's performance. So, in light of the facts, is "Eat Your Salad" underestimated? No. It seems strange but it is. Once the pleasant catchy sound has been overcome, what remains is a not very successful reminiscence of Justin Timberlake's sounds of the golden times with the addition of a pinch of energy by Bruno Mars to complete an already tasted recipe, which leaves nothing to be new to the palate of the fans.

Potentially the Citi Zeni could access the final but I don't think they will. The other songs, even the less successful ones in my opinion, from Serbia and Georgia have much more identity and will be able to be much more successful than Latvia.

The video was just a stupid idea, it has nothing to do with the subject of the song, and the singing and "playing" looks so fake in it, the live performance was good as it was.

Still think this is one of the most underrated entries though, i'm sure this will make the final, and possibly top 15.
