Infinite Diversity, Finite Combinations 3.1.1/4.1.1

Fruit Filker Prime

Oh my little fruity one, my fruity one
When ya gonna give me some fine sharoni?
In fruit salads they'd be dumb, they'd be dumb

Just soak them in the water of limes: sharoni.

(Cheers to my friend Jon for the photo.)

Infinite Diversity, Finite Combinations 1.1.1
