The Lyrics

nb. "half a crown" refers to pre-decimalisation UK coinage.....
Veg! Veg! Veg! Veg!

Star-fruit whirls are easy combined in this recipe
Raw or smoking with a sprinkling
Of mint and of sage
When I began people spoke of immortality
Certain things that could prolong
The life in front of me

(Veg)
That cucumber half a crown
(Veg)
Black plums four pence if they're round
(Veg)
That cucumber half a crown
(Veg)
Black plums four pence if they're round
Life will not end, Life will not end
Life will not end, Life will not end

Hair! Hair! Hair! Hair!

I find time spent on my locks irrelevant you see
How it grows and how long
don't 'fect mortality
I am searching, and in season, to prolong myself
Beans and fruit done
With veg and not with something else

(Veg)
That cucumber half a crown
(Veg)
Black plums four pence if they're round
(Veg)
That cucumber half a crown
(Veg)
Black plums four pence if they're round
Life will not end, Life will not end
Life will not end, Life will not end

Veg! Veg! Veg! Veg!

That cucumber half a crown etc....
repeat to end
