Grow for Me
(To the tune of "Grow for Me" from Little Shop of Horrors )

[Sung by Angel to the sprog.]

I've put you in sunlight,
I've fed you yogurt,
You've given me nothing,
But heartache and hurt!
I'm begging you sweetly,
I'm down on my knees.
Oh please - grow for me!

I've given you Gerber's,
I've tried I.V. drips,
I've given you applesauce,
You've given me zip!
Oh god how I feed you,
Oh babe, how you tease!
So please, grow for me!

I've tried everything I know,
To get you to thrive,
Considering who your parents are,
Why are you alive?!

I've tried all the formulas out there,
Each one was a dud,
I've given you strained pears with vitamin supplements,
What do you want from me blood?

Ouch! Hey, you smiled! Well I guess a few drops couldn't hurt, as long as you don't make a habit out of it or anything...

I've given you soy milk,
And many fruits strained...
Looks like you're not happy
'Less I open a vein!

I'll give you a few drops,
If that'll appease...
Now please...
Oh, please...

Ouch! Let go of me!
