lyrics

I love vegetables, I love the way
They're multicolored, like no other, makes my day
I love coffee beans and chromosome genes
I'd like some cream and sugar in my DNA
I love vegetables
I love peach incense and California mints
I love to feel the paintbrush on the canvas gray
I love shooting stars and totaled cars
I love to feel the wind a-tearing 'cross my face
I love vegetables
I know a wall, it's rather obscene
If you get there soon, you'll see what I mean
I know a girl, she lives on the hill
She's a deal of money, never made a will
I love dollar bills, unwritten wills
I love a chilly evening, darkness cold and wet
I love leather's smell and water wells
I love to burn a hole in things with cigarettes
I love vegetables
The time has now come
To build our big garden
The brine surely flows
And our minds surely know
I love oil paints and murdered saints
I love to sit and watch TV while fires flame
I love planets, stars, Saturn and Mars
I love to watch a speech and see a tongue go lame
I love vegetables

about

Douglas Chay Baltimore, Maryland

Influences include Violent Femmes, the Velvet Underground & Talking Heads, but the music of his forebears is filtered through his own distinctive world view & sonic approach, resulting in a creation uniquely his own.

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
