The Lyrics

pop a sliver of my tangerine
you would think it'd be just like a dream
it tastes funny...what a horrid thing
not ripe enough , i say
my green tangerine

i must let it ripen up in time
when orange, then it will be a snack of mine
but in this state, i cannot eat this thing
so on the tree it stays
my green tangerine

drop my eyes and sadly walk away
it looks like i will have no fruit today
for now is not the time for this cuisine
come back another day
my green tangerine

Nice job on this one-hit-wonder. What is a "lemon piper" anyway?

I found this using the random button. Simple yet effective - as per Merry's suggestion, it seemed so obvious :)
