Hold Your Stem Up is a song from the animated Little Shop episode Stage Blight

In the show, Junior has rewritten the local theater's production of "Our Town" as an autobiographical play, which Seymour and Paine are roped into performing together.

Lyrics

Seymour Krelborn Paine Driller The Dim Bulbs
Here's to a plant

Growin' it alone,

A solitary green.

Just cuz you're carnivorous

It doesn't make you mean!

Mean!
No one understands me,
Sha-la-la-la!
I get no helping hand!
Sha-la-la-la!
So now I carry on
Sha-la-la-la!
With a nerd for a friend.
Sha-la-la-la!
You gotta hold your stem up!
Hold your stem up!
Hold your stem up high!
Hold your stem up!
Nothin' you can do except to try.

Try to hold your ground,

You need some fertilizer.

It's not your fault you think of folks as appetizers!

I feel it in my roots,
Sha-la-la-la!
Deep down in the dirt,
Sha-la-la-la!
That empty feeling's grown
Sha-la-la-la!
And you know that it hurts!
Sha-la-la-la!
You gotta hold your stem up!
Hold your stem up!
Be a stand-up guy!
A stand up!
Gotta hold your,

Hold your stem up high!
