The Lyrics

He was afraid to come of of the garden
To be put into some casserole
he was afraid to come out of the garden
To get picked by some ravenous troll

Oh gee whiz, tell the people what it is

It was a long and skinny kind of greeny
Veggie that is called zucchini
That was plucked for the first time today
A long and skinny kind of greeny
Veggie that is called zucchini
yes, in the garden he wanted to stay

Two three four, do you want to hear some more..

He was afraid to get chopped up and eaten
Or get cooked in a vegetable soup
He was afraid to get chopped up and eaten
But he couldn't get out of the loop

Two three four tell em just a little more

It was a long and skinny kind of greeny
Veggie that is called zucchini
That was plucked for the first time today
A long and skinny kind of greeny
Veggie that is called zucchini
In the garden he wanted to stay

Two four six, he was really in a fix

Now he's just swimming around in the water
In a pot on the stove it is true
Now he's just swimming around in the water
And he's gonna end up in the stew

Eight nine ten, sometimes you just cannot win

He was a long and skinny kind of greeny
Veggie that was called zucchini
That was cooked for the first time today
A long and skinny kind of greeny
Veggie that was called zucchini
And in the end he will be flushed away

From the garden to the basket
From the basket to the pot--
To the pot with the water
And that's really all I've got

I kinda expected something like your previous "Stuck in the middle, white goo". Some hard 5īs anyway. ;-)

Know 1 Can Hear You Dream: sometimes my innuendoes are not really intentional; of whatever nature they might be--I suppose someone could make something out of a zucchini too if they want, and they probably will! But what would life be without imagination?

Royce, good job. 5's - Frank Zappa once had a song that went "Call any vegetable and the chances are good - that the vegetable will respond to you." So I guess this one is "Zucchini - over, out and ate"

Two, four, six, eight - tell the people what you ate...

Very good :-)

Ten, one, four--add 'em up and know your score! As in 5s, Royce, and what a great job on a song I first loved, then hated, and now get a kick out of. Very clever!

So was it a "bun-length" zuchinni? (Sorry, I hear someone had to play up the innuendo--MIGHT AS WELL BE ME) Fun stuff Royce
Royce Miller - April 20, 2004 - Report this comment
Claude, yes, they had to build a new bun for this zuchinni
