The Lyrics

Brought to you by the Jewish Carribean Papaya Lovers Council
One bite, you'll like papaya,
So buy a papaya tonight!
Try one that's yellow, or maybe green,
or somewhere in between
Try papaya to eat a treat, that's sweet, or
A savory flavor delight
Whether they're sweet or they're savory,
They're always flavory
to the very last bite!
They're so delicious,
And they're so nutritious
Good for many dishes --
salad, soup, dessert...
Why don't you try one?
Just go out and buy one,
Scoop, puree or fry one --
Gee, what could it hurt?
But eat complete papaya
Don't waste it, please taste every bite
Not only flesh, but the skin and seeds --
They will fulfill your needs
For papaya tonight!

The funniest thing I've seen all day. If this was written decades ago, it'd be the next "Yes, We Have No Bananas."
