Hyperactive

Food

- the questionable virtues of sugar!

 

HYPERACTIVE

Early in the morning when I’m startin’ out

And I’m lookin’ in my cereal bowl

I gotta put a lot of sugar on t’make it sweet

Cause my body’s gettin’ ready to roll!

 

Cho: Hyperactive!  I’m hyperactive!

I boogie, boogie all the day through!

Hyperactive!  I’m hyperactive!

Sugar’s good for me and you!

 

Hyperactive!  I’m hyperactive!

It’s a fundamental dental rule!

Hyperactive!  I’m hyperactive!

Sugar’s good for me and you!

 

When I’m standin’ at the counter at the grocery store

And my eyes are poppin’ outta my head

At the bubble gum and choc’late and a whole lot more

I remember what the T.V. said!

Chorus

 

Hyperactive! I’m hyperactive!

Some vitamins mighta been cool!

Hyperactive!  I’m hyperactive

Sugar’s good for me and you!

 

Well I ate my sugar stash and now I’m startin’ to crash

And I’m grouchy but I can’t go t’sleep

So I drink a couple colas, but they give me gas

And when I try t’start countin’ the sheep, . . they’re

 

Hyperactive!  Hyperactive!

They boogie, boogie all night through!

Hyperactive!  Hyperactive!

Hyperactive like me and you!

 

Hyperactive!  We’re hyperactive!

We boogie, boogie all the day through!

Hyperactive!  We’re hyperactive!

Sugar’s good for me and you!

Yeah! Sugar’s good for me and you!

Sugar’s good for me and yooouu!
