Music & Lyrics by Jonah Luke. Recorded by Jonah Luke.


Carrots are long orange straight and round
you can buy them at the store but they come from the ground
they taste good on almost everything
you can chop them up and put them in salads, in cakes, and carrot flavored ice cream

Carrots also have nutritious properties
they're high in dietary fiber, antioxidants, and minerals
there are so many things that carrots can do

and P.S. I love you.

Carrots are native to Europe and Southeast Asia but are now grown all across the world
they are high in beta carotene which gives them their unique orange hue
if you eat too many of them you will get a disease called hypercarotenemia
which will cause your skin to look like you just put on way too much spray on tan

But now there's a ready-to-eat snack
they're called baby carrots and you don't even have to peel them
you just pop them in your mouth, and they're great for dipping too

and P.S. I love you.

Now this has been a song about carrots
but it's really a song about my love for your
cause who really gives a fuck about carrots
what did carrots ever do for you

No they won't stop the terrorist attacks
no they won't stop the war in iraq
no carrots won't stop the genocide in Darfur
and they won't bail us out of our current economic crisis
and they won't pay for your college education
and carrots won't help get Barack Obama elected as the next President of the United States
no there's not many things that carrots can do

but P.S. I love you.
