The Lyrics

When I’m hungry for pro-duce
The grocer wants me to leave
When I’m hungry for large pro-duce
I like fruits that are free

They call me melon felon
They call me melon felon
They call me melon felon

I think cantaloupes lovely
Want a cantaloupe tree
That’s not natural, sadly
Mel-on-choly is me

I’m saddest melon felon
I’m saddest melon felon
I’m saddest melon felon

I want the melons nice sized
Thump them, how do they feel?
Then a sly endeavor I’ll try
Out the door, then melon for meal.

I’m such a melon felon
I’m such a melon felon
I’m such a melon felon
(I’ve felon love with melon)

Symmetrical cucumis
Is worthy of a longing gaze
Delectable cucumis
I gorge on them in favorite chaise

I’m hungry melon felon
I’m hungry melon felon
I’m hungry melon felon

Now I’m done (with my story)
Think my song’s about curves?
This song’s just about melons
Goodbye, ta-ta from me

So long from melon felon
So long from melon felon
So long from melon felon.

Thought this might be breast fetish but I see you are strictly cucurbacious. Interesting take on OS. But could you do nothing with the 'quite rightlies'? To me they're an integral part of the lyrics.

Good parody, outstanding "Symmetrical cucumis" verse!

LL- That's a great suggestion. I wrote this over a month ago and shelved it, and just recently remembered it. And I'd completely forgotten about the 'whispers' in the song. Maybe add some 'quite ripley' or maybe 'ripe like me'...
JJ- Thanks, John. It was a fortuitous syllabic matchup!

Imagine a song about melons that's actually about--melons! Who would have thought of that.

I also thought it was about Pamela Anderson leading a holdup gang.

Patrick- :-)
Michael- Well, I think you've created the basis for a possible parody. 'Crooking with Pam' anyone?
