Fussy Eaters Rhapsody (to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody)

Hello everyone, its Wednesday so that means another parody song for you ( stop that groaning at the back). Todays offering is inspired by Queens ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and all the fussy eater children out there. I had one myself years ago, so this is something I am well acquainted with.

A Fussy Eaters Rhapsody

This is my mealtime
Battle with my mummy
She tries to feed me
She always tries to pleed with me

Open your mouth
Just take one small bite and see
I’m not a good child
I won’t make this easy

Yes I’m a fussy small picky child
Born to drive mummy wild
Any way you bribe me, doesn’t really matter to me, to me

Mama, don’t want my lunch
No peas and ham and bread
Give me something else instead
mama, ate it yesterday
But now I’m going to throw it all away

Mama ooh
Didn’t mean to make you cry
I might eat this food again tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, cus nutrition really matters

Why can’t I just eat cake
Some chicken nuggets too
Something that won’t make me spew

Vege’s are for loosers, I don’t like fish
Gonna turn it all away, unless its sweet

Mama ooh (any way you bribe me) I don’t wanna try
Sometimes  won’t eat anything good  at all

I’ll eat a little bit of supper if I get
chocolate mouse, chocolate mouse, for my dinner tomorrow

Mushroom soup looks mucky, very very yucky me
Baby says no ( baby says no)
Baby says no (baby says no)
Baby says no, I said no
I’m gonna blow

I’m just a small child, not very hungry
I don’t need much food, i’ve a small tummy, see
Spare me my lunch, and I’ll eat all my tea

Don’t give me, broccoli, I won’t have a go
Potatos, No,  I will not have a go (have a go)
Potatoes,  I will not have a go (have a go)
Potatoes, I will not have a go (have a go)
Will not have a go (have a go)
Will not have a go, have a go
No,no,no,no,no,no, no

Oh mama mia,mama mia,mama mia I said no
That chicken stew is the devil food you gave to me, to me, to me

So you think if you beg me, you’ll get me  to try
Carrots, green beans, tomatoes and your cottage pie
No mummy, can’t feed this to me mummy,
Just gotta get out
Just gotta get out my high chair

oh yeah, oh yeah

I wont eat your green foods
Anyone can see
No point giving green foods
No point giving green foods, to me

(any way you bribe me)

I hope you enjoyed this weeks song, please let me know if there are any songs you thing would make good parodies.

    […] it was published a year ago. My personal favourite posts though are my song parodies such as Fussy Eaters Rhapsody which as the title suggests is an ode to fussy eaters in the style of the magnificent Bohemian […]

    My all time favourite Bohemian Rhapsody parody has to be the one by the Muppets but this comes a close second.

      Ah, I wouldn’t ever aim to beat the muppets, they are awesome xx

    Haha! Brilliant. This is every meal time with me. For both of mine now. I will be singing it to keep me sane tomorrow! #bigpinklink

      You may lull them into a trance state where they eat anything 😉

      1. Someone's Mum

        February 15, 2016 at 9:36 pm

        Ha! That would be ace. More likely whip them into a rage where they throw food at me though, knowing my two, and my singing! Oh, and #AnythingGoes too!

    Take a bow lovely lady! This is brilliant. I have just “done” tea with the tots with “Have a Go” / “Will not have a go” in my head throughout.

    Fantastic xx

      February 15, 2016 at 6:48 pm

      You should sing them the whole song 😉

    Awesome! This made me giggle and brought back some memories of my fussy eaters.

      It seams most mums recognise the fussy child in this song xx

    I’m thoroughly enjoying your new lyric series & this is no different! My daughter could sing this song except that she actually likes fish – most days. But then there are days where she won’t eat anything! Thanks so much for linking up with #bloggerclubuk x

    1. taabrahams73@gmail.com

      February 15, 2016 at 4:18 pm

      Ah, I bet she is lulling you into a false sense of security with the fish xx

    I’m crying at this! You are brilliant at it, you really really need to record it, would make such a good parody video. #bigpinklink

      My kids both hated brocolli as does Mr AD. They always kicked up a fuss if I cooked ‘little trees’

    February 13, 2016 at 7:18 pm

    Haha! I actually sang this out loud to the theme tune and it goes so well! Very talented and very true in terms of our little fussy eaters! Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky

    February 12, 2016 at 8:20 am

    Ohh I love this, really made me laugh. I have a fussy eater and this is all so true, what I would do for him to eat something green.xx #picknmix

    February 12, 2016 at 7:30 am

    Well done! This accurately sums up my experience with a picky eater, it’s way more fun to read it in parody than to live with it though, haha!

    1. taabrahams73@gmail.com

      February 12, 2016 at 7:35 am

      Yes, I certainly wouldnt want to relive those days xx

    February 12, 2016 at 12:14 am

    This exactly us! Gonna turn it all away, unless its sweet… and then arching his back to try and escape the high chair. Well, I;m off to cook some more fruit now cause it seems to be the ONLY food that Master X will eat. Thanks for writing – was good to defuse!

    1. taabrahams73@gmail.com

      February 12, 2016 at 7:01 am

      Toddlers can be a nightmare for eating. I guess fruit is sort of healthy xx

    Haha! This is so my son and me! His eating is a nightmare! #coolmumclub

      February 11, 2016 at 9:05 pm

      I had it with my youngest, such a shock after the eldest who would eat anything x

    February 11, 2016 at 1:25 pm

    Very much appreciated this one today – the girls have been poorly and refused to eat anything…now I’m struggling to get from ‘even if you only eat buttons I’m happy’…to ‘No, you cannot only eat buttons’. Groan.

    Love this! To think I actually tried to sing it, but stopped because my daughter was giving me funny looks. You do have a way with words 🙂 BloggerClubUK

      February 10, 2016 at 8:37 pm

    You clever lady you. Loved it. Mr Mercury (or shall we call him by his real name of Mukerjee because he was in fact half Pakistani!!!) would be proud.

      February 9, 2016 at 11:09 pm

      Ah, that is a fact I did not know. For some reason I always assumed he was greek (must be getting confused with George Michael)
