"Leave a Little Lettuce" is a song from the Johnny and the Sprites short of the same name. It is performed by John Tartaglia as Johnny and Leslie Carrara as Ginger. They use this song to teach Seymour about sharing.

Lyrics

Ginger:
Lettuce can be lovely when you're longing for a snack
It's a veritable party for your tongue
And I understand the impulse to eat all of it right up

Seymour:
Mmm-hmm.

Ginger:
But instead of all, it's better to eat some

Seymour:
What?

Ginger:
For there are other people here
Who might want salad too

Seymour:
Where?

Ginger:
And a thoughtful schmole, of course
Would know the proper thing to do

Seymour:
What?

Johnny:
(sighs) Shall we?

Ginger:
Yes, Johnny, we shall.

Ginger:
Leave some leafy leaves for those who love you
Surely there's arugula to spare
Yes, sometimes it's a pain
To give up your romaine
But there's no better feeling
Than the feeling when you share

Johnny:
Yes, leave some leafy leaves for those who love you
And you will feel a joy that never ends
When you show some self-control
And are not a selfish schmole

Johnny and Ginger:
And you leave a little lettuce for your friends

Johnny:
For lettuce is lovelier
When it's shared by two

Ginger:
Or even a few friends more

Johnny:
And someone might have something they want to share with you

Seymour:
Something they want to share with me?

Johnny:
That's what life is for

Johnny and Ginger:
Oh, leave some leafy leaves
For those who love you
What a caring message sharing sends
You will find before you're done
That sharing can be fun
So leave a little lettuce

Fuzzies:
Please do not forget us

Johnny and Ginger:
Leave a little lettuce for your friends

Oh yeah
