The Lyrics

Rubies Today!

She would never pay too high a sum
For grapefruits, although she did love 'em:
Like the sun so bright,
They reflect the orb's light.
For the nose,
They're like a rose!

"Good Buy! Rubies Today!"
Read the paper's ad for food.
For some change she can get 2k
(That's about five pounds to you).

Ingestin' this sweet treat leaves her relieved.
Another golden yellow ball she's cleaved
Perfectly in twain.
When she's finished, she will drain
Juice to a cup
And drink it up.

"There's no time to snooze! I'm off today
To grab lots before they're snatched away."
Prying off the rind.
Juice wells up
And sluices in her eye,
Making her cry.

"Good Buy! Rubies Today!"
Read the paper's ad for food.
For some change she can get 2k
(That's about five pounds to you).

(Repeat)

I thought it was going to be about precious stones, not precious fruits. 5's anyway!

I thought it was going to be rutabagas and that you were back to the vegetable theme. But I see you have held to the fruit theme today! :-)

Thanks, all. I'm wracking my brain to come up with an original I can use for rutabagas.
