It's a dark lonely night
Sitting here in the kitchen
This house is quite quiet
This fridge is quite frigid
I'm a flavorless fool
And I'm technically fruit
So I'll rot here alone
Till I'm tossed down the chute

Oh the favorite foods have me woefully outnumbered
Man, it's tough to be a cucumber

I once had a dream
I was loved and respected
But I woke to a world
Filled with hate and rejection
Children spit me back out
And youth laugh at my shape
Others hide me in salads
To cover my taste

Oh to be anything but a disgusting genetic blunder
Man, it's tough to be a cucumber

I'm sorry to be vain
And I'm sorry to be fickle
I just really really really really really really really wanna be
A pickle

Oh if I was a pickle I would dance on a cloud
Of beef, lettuce, tomato and never come down
I would fill them with laughter with joy and with song
Oh if I was a pickle, I could never go wrong

I wanna be a pickle, etc.
