Full Text

Last night when I sat down to eat my dinner,
Mommy brought my plate, and I couldn’t wait.

But then, she set it down and I saw something I’d never seen.
It was all green.

So I stared at my plate and asked my mommy,
“What’s this I see?”
She said, “Broccoli.”
She said, “Just have a taste and you may like it.”

I took a bite, and she was right!

I took one real small bite, and then I took two.
Pretty soon, my broccoli was all through.

I never thought that I would like it, but I tried it and you’ll see,
now I like to shout, “Hurray, hurrah for broccoli!”

Ha ha!

She took one real small bite, and then she took two.
Pretty soon her broccoli was through.

She never thought that she would like it, but she tried it, and you see,
now she likes to shout, “Hurray, hurrah for broccoli.”

And then I said, “Mom, more broccoli, hurray, hurrah.”

And then I said, “Mom, more broccoli, hurray, hurrah!”
And then she said “Mom, more broccoli, hurray, hurrah!"

Yum!

Yeah!
