I want fruit, I need fruit, I love fruit

Back in Boy Scouts, my friend Patrick would amuse everyone by singing popular songs with different lyrics. He could improve almost any song by replacing the word “you” with “fruit.” Three examples:

“Take my hand
Take my whole life too
For I can’t help
Falling in love with fruit.”

“I’m the one who wants to be with fruit.
Deep inside I hope fruit feels it too.
Waited on a line of greens and blues
Just to be the next to be with fruit.”

“I’ve searched the whole world over
to find a heart so true.
Such complete intoxication.
I’m high on fruit!”
