MEDICAL MONDAY 'CAN'T SLEEP? COULD IT BE WHAT YOU EAT?' Lyrics: Can't sleep the middle of the night you're awake Could be something you’ve ate Can't sleep, sleep pattern can't regulate What’s on your plate Too much fast foods hi fat well saturate Too much white salt makes your body dehydrate And all of the additives that they add for the taste Aspartame Monosodium glutamate And you know that you’re eating too much too late You should only eat a very light snack after eight Belly abuse give your stomach a break Its working overtime for a low pay rate All the caffeine and the energy drink You’re so wide awake you can’t even blink Try water chamomile tea peppermint Cherry juice celery juice help you get 40 winks Try and find Vegan foods with tryptophan in What a ting increases the serotonin The serotonin helps the melatonin The melatonin controls the sleeping Eat wholesome foods with a lot of vitamins Time to eat healthy time to begin You might see an improvement in your sleeping Cause it can be connected to what you’re eating #medicalmonday #healthyeating #ital #vegan #cantsleep #healthiswealth #rasta #reggae #isitwhatyoueat #mackab #italisvital #letyourfoodbeyourmedicine
