I’m a Beatles fan, always have been, thanks to my dad. When I was visiting my parents in Houston over the weekend, I came downstairs Sunday morning to Dad streaming the Beatles station on Spotify.

“Yesterday” has always been one of his favorites! A few years ago, someone created a fun and engaging parody of that same song, only singing about Monsanto’s glyphosate. Sometimes these can be painfully terrible, this one is absolutely awesome.

Enjoy! The lyrics are below!

Glyphosate, all my other troubles, they can wait…
I got problems on my dinner plate…
Because I ate some glyphosate…

Suddenly, I’ve been modified genetically…
There’s a cancer hanging over me…
And glyphosate sterility…

Why they had to grow GMO they wouldn’t say…
I ate something wrong, now my song is glyphosate…

Glyphosate… Not the herbicide it claims to be…
Now there’s Round-Up in my family tree…
Cuz’ they believed in glyphosate…

Why they had to grow GMO I couldn’t say…
Don’t eat something wrong, or your song is glyphosate…

Glyphosate… I got problems on my dinner plate…
(And) all my friends will suffer this same fate…
If they believe in glyphosate…

 

 I have no idea who the original creator is but sure do wish they’d come forward!  The only thing we could find was a person or group called OccupyWallets, listed on a blog site as “artist, writer, activist, philosopher, and world traveler.”  They might want to add “world changer” to that bio, as this song needs to be heard!
