Vegetables (song)

"Vegetables" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks for American rock band The Beach Boys, released as the second track on their 1967 album Smiley Smile. Paul McCartney of the Beatles appeared on an earlier version of the song entitled "Vega-Tables", chewing celery as percussion.

The song was partly inspired by Wilson's obsession with physical fitness in the late 1960s, and he intended Smile to be a "health food album". In 1969, this culminated in him opening a short-lived health food store, the Radiant Radish located in West Hollywood, California.

A discarded bridge section from "Vega-Tables" was later recycled as the a cappella "Mama Says", released on their 1967 album Wild Honey, featuring heavily syncopated vocals by the group.
