Shirley Temple – You Gotta Eat Your Spinach lyrics

You gotta eat your spinach, Baby,
That's the proper thing to do.
It'll keep you kinda healthy too,
And what it did for Popeye,
It'll do for you,

You gotta eat your spinach, Baby,
It'll give you lots of T-N-T.
For whenever you're caressing me,
Then you'll need every vitamin from A to Z

Please take my advice:
Kissing is dangerous, doctors all agree.
I'll take your advice:
Don't ever kiss anybody but me.

You gotta eat your spinach, Baby
Cause if you do you can't go wrong,
Cause it's gonna keep you nice and strong,
And the stronger you are,
The longer you'll live,
And the longer I'll have to love you.
