Take Away That Awful Greenery

From Poor Little Rich Girl, starring Shirley Temple (1936):
You've gotta eat your spinach, baby,
If you do you can't go wrong.
For it's gonna make you nice and strong,
And the stronger you are, the longer you'll live,
And the longer I'll have to love you.


No spinach, take away that awful greenery!
No spinach, give us lots of jelly beanery!
We positively refuse to budge.
We like lollipops and we like fudge,
But no spinach, Hosanna!
A few lines of the song are also sung in the movie Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1938).

Dave Haxton at MacRaven has the scoop on the spinach scare and so-called organic food.
