Song Lyric Fruit Sunday.

Jim Adams

Good afternoon everyone, this Sunday our prompt from Jim Adams Song Lyric Sunday is songs with fruit in the Title or Lyrics! Well the first to have fruit in the title and lyrics. To start off let’s have some heavy rock!

Cherry Bomb” is the debut single by the all-female bandthe Runaways from their self-titled debut album. “Cherry Bomb” was ranked 52nd on VH1‘s 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs and peaked at number 6 on the BillboardBubbling Under Hot 100 chart.

Singer/guitarist Joan Jett composed the song with Kim Fowley, the band’s then-manager. In the 2005 documentary Edgeplay: A Film About the Runaways, Fowley and former Runaways lead singer Cherie Currie claimed that “Cherry Bomb” was quickly written just for Currie to audition for the band because the band members could not perform the song she originally chose to sing.

The song was included in the soundtrack for the 2014 film Guardians of the Galaxy, in the 2nd episode of the 2019 Amazon Prime series “The Boys“, and in the 2021 Netflix film Fear Street Part Two: 1978.

Jett re-recorded the song with her band the Blackhearts for the 1984 album Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth. Cherie Currie also re-recorded “Cherry Bomb” with Marie Currie, her twin sister, on their 1997 re-released version of the album Messin’ with the Boys.

Can’t stay at home, can’t stay at school
Old folks say, “You poor little fool”
Down the streets I’m the girl next door
I’m the fox you’ve been waiting for

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I’m your wild girl
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Stone age love and strange sounds too
Come on, baby, let me get to you
Bad nights causing teenage blues
Get down ladies, you’ve got nothin’ to lose

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I’m your wild girl
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I’m your wild girl
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Hey, street boy, what some style?
Your dead end dreams don’t make you smile
I’ll give you something to live for
Have you and grab you until you’re sore

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I’m your wild girl
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry Bomb

Next up my favourite Beatle, George Harrison and the lovely Apples Scruffs which is a real tribute to all the Beatles fans.

Apple Scruffs” is a song by English rock musician George Harrison from his 1970 triple album All Things Must Pass. He wrote it as a tribute to the die-hard Beatles fans known as Apple scruffs, who used to wait outside the Apple Corps building and other London locations for a glimpse of the band members. This tradition continued after the group’s break-up in April 1970, as the scruffs were a regular presence outside the studios where Harrison recorded his album. The song was also issued on the album’s second single, as the B-side to “What Is Life“.

Harrison recorded “Apple Scruffs” in the style of Bob Dylan, playing acoustic guitar and harmonica on the basic track. As such, the song is a departure from the big sound synonymous with All Things Must Pass. In his lyrics, Harrison expresses gratitude for the scruffs’ support, states his love for them, and acknowledges that outsiders misunderstand their devotion. Harrison invited the scruffs into EMI Studios to hear the finished recording.

A popular track on radio and with several music critics, it was listed with the A-side on some singles charts in Australia and the United States. Some writers have commented on the song’s significance in light of John Lennon’s murder in 1980 and the attempted murder of Harrison in 1999, both at the hands of individuals obsessed with the Beatles, and in the context of the latter-day cult of celebrity.

Lastly this is a real beauty and hands up I have used it before but it’s perfect for the post and it’s the wonderful Kate Bush.

Eat the Music” is a song written and recorded by Kate BushColumbia Records released it as the lead single from Bush’s album The Red Shoes in the United States, while EMI chose “Rubberband Girl” everywhere else in the world. In the United Kingdom, a small handful of extremely rare 7″ and promotional CD-singles were produced, but were recalled by EMI Recods.

Eat the music is on The Red Shoes the seventh studio album by English musician Kate Bush. Released on 1 November 1993, it was accompanied by Bush’s short film, The Line, the Cross and the Curve, and was her last album before a 12-year hiatus. The album peaked at number two on the UK Albums Chart and has been certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), denoting shipments in excess of 300,000 copies. In the United States, the album reached number 28 on the Billboard 200, her highest-peaking album on the chart to date.

Split me open
With devotion
You put your hands in
And rip my heart out
Eat the music

Does he conceal
What he really feels?
He’s a woman at heart
And I love him for that
Let’s split him open

Like a pomegranate
Insides out
All is revealed
Not only women bleed

Take the stone out
Of the mango
You put it in your mouth
And pull a plum out

Take a papaya
You like a guava?
Grab a banana
And a sultana
Rip them to pieces
With sticky fingers
Split the banana
Crush the sultana

Split ’em open
With devotion
You put your hands in
And rip their hearts out

Like a pomegranate
Insides out
He’s a woman at heart
And love him for that

Take a papaya
You like a guava?
Grab a banana
And a sultana
Rip them to pieces
With sticky fingers
Split the banana
Crush the sultana

All emotion
And with devotion
You put your hands in
What ya thinking?
What am I singing?
A song of seeds
The food of love
Eat the music

Crab – Image by KL Caley.

Right thought Morgarna stubbing out her cigarette and finishing her wine…what next.
As she watched a pattern emerged, the shadows were circling the people and only seemed to be picking on the weak , age seemed to have nothing to do this selection. It was not random either there was method to this madness.
Well sitting here in the sun, nice as it was would not find any answers.
Morgarna picked up her bag and left the pub garden. The street outside was strangely quiet, no one around but she could hear a strange buzzing coming from up the hill, so she followed it.
Rooting in her bag Morgarna got her mobile out and flicking a switch on the side it opened an app that guided her toward the hum.
Turning a corner by Boots the chemist she suddenly found herself back in traffic and crowds of people. Looking around Morgana could see the shadows where moving around in the crowds, whispering in an ear here and touching a shoulder there . Scanning the area she could see they were everywhere in the cars, shops and they seemed totally in control.
Suddenly Morgarna’s phone rang, it could only be one of two people, Morgause or Merlin and it could only be important. It was Merlin , “Hi babes how’s it going?” Morgarna stepped into a shop doorway and said “Not so good Merls it’s pretty bad here, there’s shadows controling the place and they are killing people”
“I thought there was a problem you’ve been gone so long.” Merlin replied, he could hear the concern in her voice.
“I am sending Morgause to help you she jumped about five minutes ago.” Merlin continued.
Morgarna lit a cigarette and asked where she could find her sister.
Merlin said, “I am sending you an app that will take you straight to her “


Morgarna followed the new app and it took her to an aquarium just off the main street. It was dark inside but really quite an inviting place. The tanks were full of really beautiful fish and coral.
Looking around Morgana wondered where Morgause was. Suddenly Morgarna heard a tapping she swung around and followed the her ears toward the sound. There in a large aquarium were several types of crabs. Morgarna approached and peered in. There, staring at her and, in truth looking a tad discombobulated was a rather fearsome little crab with pretty big claws, making her way along some white stones her claws making a rhymic tapping sound!
Morgarna laughed….”Morgause is that you Hun? “
