The Lyrics

I taste a lemon, my tongue's feeling stung
I never taste a lime 'cause I don't want my uvula to shrink
Tamarind looks to me like some dung
The pommelo tastes worse than a ruby red grapefruit, I think
I started thinking 'bout carrot sticks
Hoping to be a vegetarian who still loves chocolate
But only one fruit never makes me sick... nope, it's not a granny smith apple

It has plenty of vitamins, particularly C
It even does look much like an Asian peach to me
I rather taste that apricot
Why not waste some time eating lots of grapes all day?

Back when I was a little kid
Each day I used to eat 27 pounds of strawberries
I know I'm smart, not yet stupid
As sure as green beans never harmed my taste buds like a blueberry
My new favorite fruit, here's a hint: It's not green, pink, or powder blue

I can eat it raw or make a juice out of it
Even though it's popular for having a center pit
I'm gonna taste that apricot
Why not waste some time eating lots of pears all day?

Durians? That's even not my style!
I wouldn't get to crave very dried dates if I were you
Or worse yet, too much green bananas, 'nuff to make me puke
I rather taste that apricot
I'm gonna taste that apricot
What in blazes? I'll eat apricot
Why not eat lots of apple fritters and banana bread all day?

Lots of potential with the title, but I had a hard time matching the words to the original song even when playing the song while I read your lyrics. Could just be me, I guess, but I really did like what you were going for here. Keep it up. :)
