Lyrics
I was hungry one afternoon
I asked my daddy for some fruit
He said wait just a sec
I've got just the fruit to suit
He went out and he came back
With a grapefruit so he said
But I tell you that that grapefruit
Was bigger than my head
He handed it to me
But that fruit just wouldn't stay
That's why this is the story
Of the fruit that got away

That fruit it started bouncing
And it bounced right down the stairs
Two, four, six, eight, ten
It bounced down the stairs in pairs
Then what happened next
I could not believe my eyes
It flew out through the window
And into the clear blue skies
Oh my that fruit is flying
I heard somebody say
That's why this is the story
Of the fruit that got away

If this story seems surreal now
Then hold on to your seat
'Cause what happened next
Is a challenge to repeat
You might not believe this
It seems awfully weird
But that grapefruit sprouted wings
And then it grew a little beard
It flew off into the sunset
And never came back since that day
That's why this is the story
Of the fruit that got away
