All Her Favorite Fruit  Camper Van Beethoven





 G-2-------2-------2-------2---------2----repeat this--|---------------------|




[D]I drive alone, home from work
And I always think of [Bm]her [A]
[D]Late at night I call her, but I never say a [Bm]word [A]
[G]But I can see her squeeze the [Bm]phone between her [A]chin and shoulder [D] [G]
[Bm]And I can [A]almost smell her [D]breath, faint, with a [G]sweet scent of decay[D] [G]
[D]She serves him mashed potatoes
She serves him peppered [Bm]steak, and [A]corn
[D]Pulls the dress up over her head, lets it fall to the [Bm]floor[A]
[G]And does she ever whisper [Bm]in his ear, [A]all her favorite fruit[D] [G]
[Bm]And all the [A]most exotic [D]places they are [G]cultivated
[D]And I'd like to take her there, rather than this [Bm]train I'm [A]on
[D]And if I weren't a civil servant, I'd have a place in the [Bm]colonies[A]
[G]We'd play croquet behind [Bm]white-washed walls and [A]drink our tea at four[D] [G]
[Bm]Within [A]intervention's [D]distance of the [G]embassy
[D]The midday air grows thicker[A] w[D]ith the heat
And drifts [Bm]towards the line of [A]trees
[D]When negroes blink their eye[A]s,[D] they sink into siest[Bm]a [A]
[G]And we are rotting like a [Bm]fruit underneath [A]a rusting roo[D]f [G]
[Bm]We dream our [A]dreams and sing our [D]songs of love -[G] fecundity
Of [D]life and love[G], of [D]life and [G]love, of [D]life and [G]love
(end with opening riff, then finish on D)
You may wish to play the G barred on the 3rd fret, and sometimes pick the
top three strings descending.

Triangle Man, Triangle Man
Triangle Man hates Person Man
They have a fight, Triangle wins
Triangle Man.
