lyrics

I had been able to shirk it for so long
though I could not avoid its dreaded name
I had heard stories of the long nights with long fights
this phrase lives on infame

I had been able to shirk it for so long
That it became a point of pride
But now I sit with my girlfriend and her family
And they pass to me a dish of this dreaded side

Holy wow
I love Brussel sprouts
God damn
I must scream and shout
Have you heard
I love Brussel sprouts

(Father: Get down from the table!)

’Tis only human to have fear of the unknown
A strong component of fight of flight
But you’ll never know if you could like something you fear
If you drown it in olive oil you might

(Father: Ugh! Not again!)

Holy shit
I love Brussel sprouts
God damn
I must scream and shout
Have you heard
I love Brussel sprouts

Broccoli was suggested once to me
But the florets got stuck in my teeth
Squash too squishy and cauliflower’s a bore
When it came to veggies I'd no idea what was in store

Holy wow
I love Brussel sprouts
God damn
I must scream and shout
Have you heard
I love brussel sprouts

(Father: I don't care how much you love him, you can't see him anymore)
