The Lyrics

Cherries are a fruit best eaten when ripe
But please throw away the stem and the pit that's found inside
I don't know how many cherries I have ever eaten
I don't know how many cherries Eve ate back in Eden
I don't know how many cherries Adam popped when he took off and went a-seedin'
Cherries are a fruit to eat every night

Cherries often come in varieties like Bing
You can hang them from your earlobes and wear them like fruit bling
I don't know how many cherries you could use as earrings
I don't know if doing so would make you lose your hearing
I don't know how many cherries you would have to give to me to leave me cheering
Cherries are magical fruit, a delight

It's such a wonderful fruit, a joy to behold
With its dark crimson skin highly waxed
It has the right amount of tartness, just the right zing
And it makes me feel, makes me feel
That it's the one fruit I need in my life

The truth is that I love fruit
And cherries are the best, they are the right food
Because they more than pass the test, I know it's so true
So just forget about the rest,
Because a cherry's all you need to taste, you'll see
And you'll agree I'm right!

Cherries are the fruit that sprang from the tree
That was hacked to tiny bits by the Father of our Country
I don't know if it is really true he told no lie
I don't know if anyone knows the real reason why
I don't know if the young ax-man just sought to defy the pundits who insisted
Cherries are a magical fruit, a delight
With each bite... a delight...
Cherries are my fruit

Tough one to do. You did it well. I like the quasi-pedagogical tone.

Delicious. Did you know that cherries are good for gout?

I started this, and now you're taking full credit. Great.

I had some trouble singing "You can hang them from your earlobes and wear them like fruit bling". Also, I need backup singers ...
