Wise words from the departing
Eat your greens, especially broccoli
Remember to say "thank you" for the things you haven't
Had
By working the soil we cultivate the sky
We embrace vegetable kingdom
The death of your father, the death of your mother
Is something you prepare for
All your life
All their life

Those lines are repeated over and over with the
Following variations:

The death of the father and the death of the mother

Wear sensible shoes and always say "thank you"
Especially for the things you never had

Is something you prepare for
All your life
All of your life

And enter the vegetable kingdom of our own heaven

By working the soil we cultivate good manners
Is to say "please" and "thank you"
Especially for the things you never had

And always say "thank you"
Especially for broccoli
