There is a very irresponsible Tomato
He goes by the name of Big Red
He doesn’t like being told what to do or say
So says his wife Ruby Red.
who always gets her way.
As usual Big Red is running late
and he is captured and thrown into the back
of a very large truck.
The life of an irresponsible Tomato is really
starting to suck.
Big Red and a thousand other Tomatoes are
unloaded and placed onto a conveyor belt.
But with his little green bits he hangs on for
And he gets a bruise and a nasty little welt.
He doesn’t like the look of what lays ahead
He should of stayed green and remained in bed.
Cause nothing beats a life on the vine.
Swinging in the breeze is all sweet and fine.
Up ahead is Mr put the Tomato in the can man.
He isn’t very happy cause he can see Big Red
dragging the chain.
God irresponsible Tomatoes can be such a pain.
How hard can it be to go into a can
Thinks Mr put the Tomato in the can man.
Some Tomatoes are just plain stubborn
They don’t know when to give in
After all what is so bad about being sealed
inside a can of tin.
Big Red rolls off the conveyor belt and lands
in the handbag of a worker leaving for lunch.
He cant believe his luck and he says a silent
‘Thanks a bunch’.
The worker sits on a park bench and reaches for
But instead of an Apple she grabs a big juicy Tomato.
She lets out a yelp and Big Red lands on the ground
with a crunch.
He rolls down the hill straight into a storm water drain.
He has lost a few seeds and a bit of skin.
But there isn’t much pain.
As he bobs up and down in the dirty water
Big Red thinks about his wife and daughter.
Ruby Red and little Very Red.
Big Red starts to struggle.
If he was responsible he would have brought
Big Red is trying his best
But he really cant take much more.
Just then a Possum wanders past feeling really
He would really like a blossom
But a Tomato will do.
He doesn’t care about dirty water and a bit of poo.
Big Red notices the paw reaching for the prize.
But Big Red is smarter then a Marsupial.
When he went to school he was the star pupil.
With a bit of a shake and a bit of a roll
He exits the sewer pipe.
and he lands on a grassy knoll.
We know that Big Red is irresponsible
but he is also irresistible.
For a Wasp has heard the commotion
and she springs into action.
She intends to inject her eggs inside Big Reds
So that her off spring has some feed.
But Big Red also has a need.
He needs to escape at full speed
He has thought of a ruse
And he rolls over and shows the Wasp a purple
The Wasp has a look
she really prefers fresh fruit
So she lifts up her right foot
And she gives Big Red the boot.
Big Red just lays there catching is breath
Thinking about how many times he has
Just then a farmers ute comes flying down
And he squashes Big Red like a Cane Toad.
Big Red is not with us anymore
But at least he want end up in a can
or in a bottle of Tomato puree
Lets celebrate the life of Big Red
The irresponsible Tomato
Hip Hip Hooray.
The Irresponsible Tomato
is now just a speck in the sky
And I know I shouldn’t say this
But you cant beat Tomato sauce on a Pie.
