Liner Notes: 

Because there are not enough songs about them...

Lyrics: 

V1
they’re tart and sweet
with velvety skin
both small and neat
in orange golden
always such a treat
to sink my teeth in

L
a-pri-cots......

C
I got caught
stealing apricots
who would’ve thought
with all I’ve got
I’d steal apricots?
I’d steal apricots?

V2
not plum nor peach
but something between
I need them in reach
dried or fresh to eat
they made me a thief
calling out to me

L
a-pri-cots......

C
I got caught
stealing apricots
who would’ve thought
with all I’ve got
I’d steal apricots?
I’d steal apricots?

B
they looked
so delicious
they felt
so ripe....
they are
so nutritious
they were
just right....

L
a-pri-cots......

C
I got caught
stealing apricots
who would’ve thought
with all I’ve got
I’d steal apricots?
I’d steal apricots?

OUTRO
I need more apricots
ohh...oh
I need more apricots
(Repeat and fade)

Haha! What the world needs now is more apricots, right? No. I can relate to the moral crossroad in the chorus, but the fact that it's apricots? I can't...I just can't. I've tried to like 'em, really. it's just not there for me. However, your clever little tune here made me smile in the wee hours of the morning! Smile

Haha! I love them too and my Uncle Sam used to make apricot fried pies that were to die for. Cute song!

It's true there are not many songs about them. Funny lyrics, light and colored, like some childhood reminiscence.
