This song is about our friend Boris, who prefers fresh produce to the normal spider fare of moths and mosquitoes.


I’m a vegetarian spider
I’m a lover not a fighter
‘stead of moths I’ll eat some carrots
‘stead of skeeters I eat squash!
In my web I catch tomatoes
How I love french fried potatoes
Onions, beets, and peppers
Are my favorite things to nosh

No Flies, No Ants
Feed me, Juicy Plants
Stop by any day
And grab a side of cole slaw on the way

Oh, my friends tell me I’m strange
For a spider, I’m deranged
I’d rather eat some tofu
Than feast on flee or bee.
Other spiders are judgmental
When I’m eating curried lentils
They can have their insects
I know what’s best for me


Hey kids, what's your favorite produce?
Brussel sprouts make me wanna shout
I go bananas for bananas
I like leeks, I like leeks
Rutabaga, rutabaga, rutabaga, ROOT
