Citi Zēni

Citi Zēni are an award-winning, 6-piece band from Riga, who were formed at the beginning of 2020.

The self-proclaimed ‘Princes of Rap’ and ‘Divas of 21st Century Pop’ are just as well known for their energetic performances and eccentric style as they are for their cheeky lyrics.

The band released their debut album, Suņi Iziet Ielās, to much critical acclaim and have already started work on the follow-up album, planning to release a second single from it shortly after the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest has taken place.

The eco-friendly sextet is made up of Jānis on vocals, Dagnis who contributes vocals and saxophone, Reinis on keyboards, Krišjānis playing guitar, Roberts giving us bass, and Toms on drums.

Lyrics of Eat Your Salad

Instead of meat I eat veggies and…
I like them both fresh, like them both juicy
I ride my bicycle to work instead of a car
All of my groceries are divided by weight and stored in glass jars (Yeah)
Got my reusable bag
That swag, my flex, my flag
Zero waste, that is my jam
Save fuel and sell your truck
The karma comes for free and so does luck
All aboard the green Titanic
Let‘s sail the world and then cruise the Atlantic
No ice in the way, no need to panic
All the signs are there, let‘s go organic

Oh, when you eat your veggies
Baby, think of me
Little kitty, don‘t you know that
Being green is cool?

Know that being green is hot (It‘s hot)
Being green is cool (It‘s cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as faa
Being green is hot (It‘s hot)
Being green is cool (It‘s cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as you

Ring, ring, God damn, it‘s an exam (Let‘s go)
Get your trash can, no back-up plan and sort through it
Bend over, then jiggle that peach (Ayy)
You recyclin‘ while I‘m loving those cheeks (That‘s sweet)
I‘m a beast instead of a killer, forget the hot dogs (What)
‘Cause my sausage is bigger
Three, two, one, all the girls go eco
If you want your man‘s tongue longer than a gecko‘s

Oh, when you eat your veggies
Baby, think of me
Little kitty, don‘t you know that
Being green is cool?

Know that being green is hot (It‘s hot)
Being green is cool (It‘s cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as faa
Being green is hot (It‘s hot)
Being green is cool (It‘s cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as you

Know that being green is hot (It‘s hot)
Being green is cool (It‘s cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as faa
Being green is hot (It‘s hot)
Being green is cool (It‘s cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as

Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na

Know that being green is hot (It‘s hot)
Being green is cool (It‘s cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as faa
Being green is hot (It‘s hot)
Being green is cool (It‘s cool)
Eat your salad, save the planet
Being green is sexy as you
