Lyrics

The Emperor of Oranges
That shiny, shiny man
Plants pips and forages
In the empire he calls his backyard

All those little seeds
Answering Nature's little needs
With his ugly wife Liz

Who tells Mr Orange the truth
One of these days Mr Orange will wake up
Freshly-squeezed orange juice

Mr Orange
You are like cherries in cherry trees
Mr Orange
How you love making love in the summer breeze
Mr Orange
How you love lying back in the lap of the sea
Like mangoes in mango trees
Watching blue stars that shiver
Mr Orange, the emperor of citrus
In his world at the edge of the river

The Emperor of Oranges
Irrigates scintillatingly
The Emperor of Oranges
Irrigates irritatingly

All those little seeds
Answering Nature's little needs
With his ugly wife Liz

Who says Mr Orange had better watch out
One of these days there's a squeeze on the way
And the pips ..... will pop out

Mr Orange
You are like cherries in cherry trees
Mr Orange
How you love making love in the summer breeze
Mr Orange
How you love lying back in the lap of the sea
Like mangoes in mango trees
Watching blue stars that shiver
Mr Orange, the emperor of citrus
In his world at the edge of the river
Watching blue stars that shiver
Mr Orange, the guardian of Truth
Ended up orange juice
