The Lyrics

Bought some ice cream; flavor tangerine.
Must have been some commie pinko scheme.
Down at Denny's; callin' it spring fling,
This lesson learned today,
Some mean tangerine.

Caught the shingles, strangled in my prime.
Infections of the mystic cryptic kind.
It dropped to my groin and so did sting,
This lesson learned today,
Some mean tangerine.

------ instrumental break ------

Such a crime, I cannot walk away,
Any cure you got, I'll gladly pay.
Sinking like a gimp submarine,
Don't listen when they say,
Try green tangerine.
