The Lyrics

I made it through the bitterness,
Somehow I made it through.
They’re like alum on my tongue
As through I chew.

They’re not a treat to eat
But not bad when had a few
You have; and you’ll deal
With astringent feel. . .
Time for a brew!

Spicy gherkins
Slumber in slurry of brine.
Spicy gherkins,
Yet I start on them to dine.

Gonna dig into that grub; joy’s
Near here with this repast.
They’re tastier as I chew. . .
A gustatory blast.

They’re quite fine as I dine.
Taste is strong, yeah, you might say “bold,”
And they make my mout’
Form into a pout,
But on them I’m sold.

Spicy gherkins
Slumber in slurry of brine.
Spicy gherkins,
Yet I start on them to dine;
I now find their tartness fine.

I’m inclined thus to dine
On them nearly every time
I sit for a meal.
It’s grown, their appeal;
“Bring me more!” I’ve cried.

Spicy gherkins
Plumped up in slurry of brine.
Spicy gherkins,
Now on them I always dine;
Even for breakfast they’re fine.

Spicy gherkins, yum, yum!
Spicy gherkins.
To my craw they slide.
Such a bold treat I always eat; they can’t be beat.

So tasty!
Hand me some more tart treat. . .
I’ll eat a hundred nine!!
