Fruit Lady (a children's song) Played on 3 String Cigar Box Guitar. Please sing along!!

LYRICS:

Fruit Lady

My heart is made of mango
and my fingers are ten ripe bananas.
My head's a big fat melon
and my toes are segments of a tangerine.

CHORUS
I'm the fruit lady, yeah yeah.
I'm the fruit lady, yeah yeah.
I'm the fruit lady, yeah yeah yeah yeah!

If I'm feeling hungry
I'll eat two of my fingers and grow some more.
And when I run too fast
my lychee eyes pop out and roll along the floor!

CHORUS

Sometimes I get sad and I cry
tears of lemonade.
I cry until I've filled a glass
then go outside and drink it in the shade.

CHORUS

A quick live demo of another song for our upcoming grandchild : -)...or anyone else (of any age!) who wants to listen and sing along.
Got to remember to take an apple with me now when I go busking for that "crunch" loop.
Played on a 3 string Cigar Box Guitar that I made. To see and hear more of that CBG see this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2tqLX_7sY8

thanks Thomas...well so far this song has taught Uncle John what a lychee is, made a few people laugh and encouraged you to eat fruit : -)

Wow Belinda, I sure love the fun you put in your songs. They taste good too! Think I'm gonna have some blueberries for breakfast.
