Sayonara Synthetic Dyes — I Was Still Raised on Kraft Dinner® and Gold Stars!


Raised on Kraft Dinner and Gold Stars © Robyn Michele Levy 1989

Raised on Kraft Dinner® and gold stars
Chauffeured ‘round in fancy cars
Pop-Tart® farts at the breakfast table
T.V. Dinners with Rogers cable

Froot Loops® drowned in two-percent
Do what you say, ignore what you meant
I gotta tummy-ache
Who ate the icing off the Sarah Lee® cake?

Wieners and beans, Velveeta® dreams
We adore the corner store
Stuff a licorice down your pants
Didn’t get that cash advance

Not my fault I’m still awake
Better make me a chocolate shake!

Oh my God, I’m in trouble
My sugar Mommy burst her bubble…
I spilled the milk, I’m a sinner —
Go straight to bed with no Kraft Dinner®!
