ST. LOUIS, MO (YOUTUBE) – These high schoolers are hungry.  They produced a music video to the tune of  “We Are Young” by Fun to show how much they hate the new lunch program.  The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 was put into law and the kids are not happy about it.  They say the program leaves them wanting more food.

Lyrics:

Give me some seconds
I, I need to get some food today
My friends are at the corner store
Getting junk so they don’t waste away
My lover ate her 2 grams of meat
Just about to starve
My bread was taken by some school bully
Askin’ bout s’more
And i know i gave up on food months ago
I know i’m trying to forget it
But between the milk and feta cheese
The pains in my tummy sing
You know I’m trying hard to find
nourishment

So by the time you go to practice
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home

Tonight
We are hungry.
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

Tonight
We are hungry
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

Now i know that this is not
All that you got.
I guess that I,
I just thought maybe we could find a
way not to starve today
But our friends are back
They are filled right up
Cause they found somewhere to find lots of food

Tonight
We are hungry
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

Tonight
We are hungry
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

Crawling home tonight
Just crawling home tonight
Crawling home tonight
Just crawling home tonight;

The cooks are on my side
But I have no energy to run
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
No nourishment arrived
But i can taste mom’s meal
So will someone come and carry me home

Tonight
We are hungry
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

Tonight
We are hungry
Set the policy on fire
It can burn brighter
Than the sun

So if by the time that it’s all over
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight
