The Lyrics

sorry, but I just can't help it - I'm a boysenberry man
Melinda was mine
'til the time
that I found her
eating pears
unawares

Then Sue came along
loved me strong
but she cooked me
irish stew
so that died too

Don't know that I will
but until
I discover
a girl who'll eat
boysenb'ries and be my lover
I'll be what I am
A boysenberry man
Boysenberry Man

I've had it to here
eatin' weird
types of produce
kiwi fruits
snowpea shoots

I don't like peas
and that awful
corn-on-the-cob juice
bring me please
boysenb'ries

Don't know that I will
but until
I can find her
a girl who has
never used a pepper grinder
I'll be what I am
A boysenberry man
Boysenberry Man

555, great job, Stuart! If you like Boysenberries, you might like Solid Hairy Ham.

Halle-Berry-licious, but have you ever tasted cloudberry jam? It's a bit more expensive, but worth the difference.

thanks heaps K1 - I'm off to the supermarket now (and if you're tagging me along with this cloudberry stuff, someone just might post some 1s in retaliation) :-)
