Songs from NWMN Synod Youth Gathering

Hey! We’re in the middle of a great youth gathering here in beautiful, balmy (not), Detroit Lakes area. Or as the locals call it, DL.
I will say right now that this is an amazing group of singers – maybe the loudest singers I’ve ever sung with at a High School event.
In an effort to get you to keep up the singing wherever you go, and perhaps lead a few songs back in your home congregations, I’ll post the songs we sing as we sing ’em – meaning I’ll keep updating this throughout the weekend.
Here goes:

(tune: I’m gonna pop some tags…)
I’m gonna pop some grub
Got hunger inside my belly
God is providin’, lookin appetizin’
Food is super awesome

(tune: I wear your grandad’s clothes…)
I eat my vegetables
They taste incredible
They are so colorful
Got two servings in my bowl
