If you fall off your bike
And you skin your knee knee knee
What helps you heal heal heal? Vitamin C C C.
íCause healthy skin skin skin needs collagen-gen-gen,
Which is made with a Vitamin called C. C? Si. C.
How do we get it? Donít sweat it.
You can get it in an orange.
You can get it in a grapefruit.
You can get it in a cantaloupe or a honeydew.
There is plenty in a strawberry, dewberry,
Blackberry, blueberry, bing cherry, nectarine or peach.
There is plenty of Vitamin C in each.

If I feel a cold coming over me me me
Some say that C C C will help it flee flee flee.
But others disagree most heartily-ly-ly.
Itís the age-old Vitamin C controversy.
No. Si. No. Si si si. No no!
Still no one can dispute: thereís Vitamin C in fruit.
You can get it in an orange.
You can get it in a grapefruit.
You can get it in a cantaloupe or a honeydew.
There is plenty in a strawberry, dewberry,
Blackberry, blueberry, bing cherry, nectarine or peach.
There is plenty of Vitamin C in each.

Now youíll find other foods with C
Like artichoke and broccoli,
Cabbage, carrots, collard greens,
Spinach and wax beans
Parsnips, sweet potatoes, turnips, stewed tomatoes,
How about a Brussels sprout?
Letís go back to the fruit.
Iíd rather get it from a lemon,
Or you can suck on a persimmon
Iíd rather get it from a pineapple or a juicy quince.
You can get it in an orange.
You can get it in a grapefruit.
You can get it in a cantaloupe or a honeydew.
There is plenty in a strawberry, dewberry,
Blackberry, blueberry, bing cherry, nectarine or peach.
There is plenty of Vitamin C in each.

If you want to be be be totally healthy-thy-thy
Hereís the recipe-pe-pe that will guarantee-tee-tee
That you get enough of the proper stuff,
That you get enough of the stuff.
And the stuff is what? What? What?
Vitamin C! Si? Si! No! Yes! Vitamin C.
