Baby Ate Soil

The strange search terms continue. One that has actually shown up more than once is “baby ate soil”. C’mon, really? I’m not a parent, but I imagine that the average baby is going to eat lots of things that are more worrisome than dirt. Like those “meat sticks” for example. In any case, this search term inspired me to write a song.

Baby ate soil
It gave her a rash
Even worse than the time
That baby ate trash

Baby ate soil
And me no like-a
Cause it could indicate
That baby got pica

Baby ate soil
Cause it tastes so good
It made her poop loose
Like you knew it would

Baby ate soil
It smells better than mud
Baby gettin’ awful sick
Of that Gerber crud


Baby ate soil
But don’t you worry
That soil gonna exit baby
In a mighty hurry

Baby ate soil
It ain’t no joke
Specially when you notice
Baby’s diaper done broke

Baby ate soil
But it ain’t no sin
Just watch baby shovel
That dirty dirt in

I'm with Barbara...pure genius. I want to hear it with music! (In my mind the tune was sort of bluesy rock.)

Brilliant!! I'm singing it a little bit like another jc-as in
I love how you worked pica in the lyrics-and of course the guitar solo!

yep. it goes well with my constant refrain 'she eats dirt for crying out loud.' when one of the girls picks food off the floor in front of a stranger.

I really wish I could find the song I wrote "I'm a sandbag, baby" - it goes to the tune of James Taylor "Steamroller Blues." If I find it I'll send it to you.

Will you please do an audio version of this for download? pwease? Then you could do a remix.

Yes! Audio post! Your song is hilarious. Btw, you know you are just making it worse! Now all internet surfers with pica-suffering babies will be directed to your doorstep.

Deb - That's the kind of tune I imagined too!

h&a - I might if I can come up with something halfway decent. I always wanted to be a songwriter. I'd have to find some way to host it though.

That's a fantastic song! Wear your dew rag and throw down your guitar case in town and you'll either get arrested or a date.
Can't you do a song and put it on you tube?
