Eat Your Salad, the “green” Latvian song about vegetables and the planet we wanted to see in the Eurovision final

The Riga band sent a strong environmental message from the Eurovision stage in Turin, with a song that immediately went viral on social media. Did you hear it? We really liked it, but unfortunately it won’t be in the final

They are called Citi Zēni, they come from Latvia and they represented their country in the semifinals of Eurovision 2022 with a very catchy song (sung in English), of those that immediately get in your head and fight to leave . Song title, Eat your salad – Eat your salad.

Much more than an easy-to-remember comeback and humming in the shower: the whole text (and also the official video clip, which you can see below) is a real hymn to sustainability, to good habits that, if practiced by everyone, can make a difference and save the planet of destruction to which we ourselves have condemned.

All in all, a lively rhythm and a bit of irreverence for focus on a very serious and urgent issue: the protection of the environment. So, using the bike to go to work instead of the car, buying loose food and storing it in glass jars, walking around with the reusable shopping bag, saving the planet are no longer verses of a song but authentic sustainability tips that need to be put in place. practice immediately.

An “organic” life as the song’s lyrics say, fighting waste and recycling materials, is what we need to put into practice now if we want to see a little beyond our future.

The song is already a slogan on social media and has gone viral as the background music of the short videos shared on TikTok, consolidating itself as a vegetarian and ecological anthem for the youngest, fortunately more and more careful in the environmental protection. Being green is beautiful, it’s seductive, it’s a good card to play with to win a girl – you can read between the lines of the text.

Taking advantage of a media opportunity of such magnitude as the Eurovision Song Contest, seen by millions of people across Europe, to talk about sustainability and plant feeding stylesis a bold choice made by this band of Latvian boys born in the year 2020 and already very famous in their homeland.

Unfortunately, the Citi Zēni did not overcome the obstacle of the first semifinal and were eliminated last night, but it does not matter: their message has already reached millions of homes and will continue to spread thanks to the echo gained on social media. We hope that this is just the first of a long series of songs dedicated to sustainability, and that more and more people can become aware of an important issue such as the protection of the environment, including food.

Also because, ultimately, there is so much more to a salad than a vegetable diet.

Here is the official music video for the song Eat your salad:

Instead of meat, I eat vegetables and ***
I like both fresh, as well as both juicy
I ride my bike to work instead of a car
All my groceries are divided by weight
And stored in glass jars (yes)

I have my bag reusable
This is swag, my flex, my flag
Zero waste, this is my jam
Save fuel and sell your truck
Karma comes for free and so does luck

All aboard the green Titanic
We sail the world and then cross the Atlantic
There is no ice on the road, no need to panic
All the signs are there, let’s go organic

Oh, when you eat your vegetables, girl, think of me
(Little kitten, don’t you know that being green is great?)

Know that being green is hot (it’s hot)
Being green is great (it’s great)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is as sexy as you

Play, it sounds, damn it, it’s an exam, let’s go
Get your trash, no backup plan, and order it
Fold in and then move this peach (ayy)
You’re recycling while I’m loving these cheeks (that’s sweet)

I’m a beast instead of a killer, forget about hot dogs (what?)
Because my sausage is bigger
Three, two, one, all the girls echo
If you want your husband’s tongue to be longer than a gecko’s

Oh, when you eat your vegetables, girl, think of me
(Little kitten, don’t you know that being green is great?)

Know that being green is hot (it’s hot)
Being green is great (it’s great)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is as sexy as you

Here is the translation of the song:

Instead of meat, I eat vegetables and ***
I like them both fresh and juicy
I use my bike to go to work instead of the car
And all my food is divided by weight
And stored in glass jars

I have my own reusable bag
That swag, my flex, my flag
Zero waste, that’s what I like
Save fuel and sell your truck
Karma comes for free and so does luck

All aboard the Titanic green
We set sail for the world and then sailed across the Atlantic
No ice in between, no need to panic
All the signs are there, we become organic

When you eat your vegetables, honey, think of me
Girl, don’t you know that being green is beautiful?

Know that being green is sensual
Being green is beautiful
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is as sexy as you are

Play, play, fuck, it’s an exam
Grab your basket, no backup plan, and order it
Bend over and shake this peach
You’re recycling while I love these cheeks
I’m a beast instead of a killer, forget about hot dogs
Because my sausage is bigger
Three, two, one, all the girls become echoes
If you want your husband’s tongue to be longer than a gecko’s

When you eat your vegetables, honey, think of me
Girl, don’t you know that being green is beautiful?

Know that being green is sensual
Being green is beautiful
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is as sexy as you are
