Fresh Fruit

Album: Exotic Birds and Fruit (1974)
  • In praise of fruit I wrote this song
    Because of fruit my heart is strong
    Who could estimate its worth?
    Fruit's the finest food on earth

    Fresh fruit, juice and seeds
    Please don't touch, please don't squeeze
    Fresh fruit, juice and pulp
    Like to gulp the whole lot up

    Here's another point of view
    Fruit is good for doggies too
    Rover wags his tail with glee
    When he gets his vitamin C

    Have you caught a touch of flu
    And you can't think what to do
    Famous doctors all agree
    fruit's the safest remedy

    Fresh fruit Good and sweet
    Makes you want to give up meat
    Fresh fruit, ripe and firm
    Makes them squealing taste-buds squirm. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
