I live the shelf life I’m up to date
Got it printed on my bottom so you know I’m fresh and great
The time is now, you don’t wanna wait
Take me out, take a bite, before it gets too late
Step up to the plate
Timely fashion, timely taste, you got to keep up with the times, don’t go to waste

You sniff the milk and it sniffs you back, now you’re going down
You sniff the milk and it sniffs you back, now you’re going down

The hot dogs, they all got their day
Same with sour cream
Or that low-fat fruit parfait
You got to use it, or give it away
Life is short, live it up, before it’s all passé
Eat up, don’t delay
Life is not a cabernet, you don’t get better on the shelf, you just go gray

You sniff the milk and it sniffs you back, now you’re going down
It’s not a joke, it’s a gag attack, now you’re going down

You gotta get with the times, keep up, don’t lag
If you’re sitting around you get tired and old, you get moldy, you get the cold shoulder and you gonna make your friends all gag

You gotta eat it up, use it up, wear it out
You gotta make it do or do without

Why waste your time, your life, your food, your drink, check the date on the bottom don’t throw it in the sink

What you thinkin?
You think it all costs nothin?

Why you toss that potato, why you throw away the muffin? That’s a half a sandwich, it’s all good, start chewin, you know what you’re doin

Every shelf of your refrigerator needs a full inventory, check the label, tell the story of the food goin’ down, down down the drain

Wolf it down, don’t be a birdbrain!

I live the shelf life I’m up to date
Yeah, I’m fresh and great
The time is now, you don’t wanna wait
Before it gets too late
Step up to the plate
Timely fashion, timely taste, you got to keep up with the time
Don’t let me go to waste
Don’t let me go to waste
Check the date!
