Bring your "Yes on 37 to Label Genetically Engineered" signs - if you have them, bring your children and come have fun!

Lyrics: ~~~~~~~~~~~~LYRICS~~~~~~~~~~~~
Label GM Food Right Now!
(Sung to the tune: The Battle Hymn of the Republic)
Mine eyes have seen the dangers
Of those awful GMOs.
They are being forced upon us
By agri~biz~ness, ya know.
Addicting farmers to weed killers
Polluting communities, -- oh no!!! (EVERYONE)
Our government’s not protecting us!
(refrain)
We don’t want to eat Monsanto’s GM food!
Selling it unlabeled is dece~ptive and rude!
We don’t want to eat Monsanto’s GM food
Label GM food right now!
~~~
Consumers want food labeled
So we know what IS inside.
If GMOs are good for us
Why do they have to hide?
Why not label GMOs
Let shoppers decide.
We have the right to know!
(refrain)
We don’t want to eat Monsanto’s GM food!
Selling it unlabeled is dece~ptive and rude!
We don’t want to eat Monsanto’s GM food!
Label GM foods right now!
~~~
We’ve seen big corporations
Patent public’s precious seeds.
Farmers sued for saving those
They used to fre~ely breed.
Failure of our government
To serve people over greed.
Is killing our democracy!
(refrain)
We don’t want to eat Monsanto’s GM food!
Selling it unlabeled is dece~ptive and rude!
We don’t want to eat Monsanto’s GM food!
Label GM food right now!
Label GM food right now!

Label GM food RIGHT NOW!
