The Lyrics

Are you lacking some spices, my dear?
Coriander and tarragon
Remember she is now in a prison
Where the spice is little or none

Find some horseradish and take it to her
(She's in West Virginia in a Federal penn)
Ginger, parsley and fenugreek
(Tracing it back, would she do it again?)
Without much spice, the food is bland
(Blankets are thin and the guards big as mountains)
She must have the spices she seeks
(Life without spice is a terrible thing)

Find her some saffron and tumeric, grand
(What she would give for a sprinkling of dill)
Ginger, parsley and fenugreek
(Absent of those is most of her food)
She won't be picky about the brand
(Just anything that tastes good to the tongue)
Spice is now the thing that she seeks

Get her some nutmeg for her pumpkin pie
(Warm, mellow, running with whipped cream medallions)
Tarragon and parsley, no doubt
(This is her order, if you would fulfill)
Pumpernickel on freshed baked rye
(That she fought for some spice, 'twill not be forgotten)
I can't wait til her book comes out

Are you going to Stewart's spice fair?
It will all come out, in due time
The stories of Martha's time spent in there
Too much salt and too little thyme
