If Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” was about Food Waste

The club isn’t the best place to save the planet,
so the restaurant’s where I go
Me and my friends at the table talking stats
about bout food waste in the world

I saw my dream woman at the bar
throw half of her meal out,
and my jaw hit the floor
She’s perfect in every way,
but if she wastes,
it’s a dealbreaker for sure

Now I’m singing like
Girl, did you know how much
food in the world gets wasted? 1 point 3
Billion tons of food from stores restaurants,
homes, and companies?
boy, boy, you talk too much
1 in 9 people on on earth go hungry
You should take a doggy bag please
You should take a doggy bag please
Mm mm mm!

I don’t love when you waste your food
We make way more than we consume
Starving kids don’t get to choose
When they go to bed hungry

At the grocery in aisle two
I always buy all the ugly fruit
Cuz you know that it still tastes like it’s brand new
And it’s good for your country

Oh I oh I oh I oh I
I don’t love when you waste your food
Oh I oh I oh I oh I
I don’t love when you waste your food

One week in, we let the story begin,
follow you home for our first date
I’ve made you a flow chart
about how you can get smart
about your personal food waste

I talk for hours and hours
about how you have the power
to ignore some expiration dates
And if your fridge is too cold,
then food can grow old
a little faster than you’d like

And i’m singing like
Girl, did you know how much
Food thrown away by restaurants is landfill bound?

Why’d you throw half of your burger out?

boy, boy, you talk too much
1 in 9 people on on earth go hungry
I think you gotta leave
I think you gotta leave

Mm mm mm!
I don’t love when you waste your food
We make way more than we consume
Starving kids don’t get to choose
When they go to bed hungry

Why don’t we call up the EU
Petition them for new policies too
One in four calories don’t get consumed
And no one should go hungry
