Out in the country, town of 300,
doing those things that kids do.
Enjoying all of nature, the end of the 50s,
loving life, and heaven, its true.

There was a secret place I kept to myself
and waited for my parents to leave,
once the cars gone, up into heaven
pretending there was an Adam to my Eve.

Up into the plum tree Id climb
where the fruit was not yet ripe,
but oh, the purpleness of that fruit
and Id yearn for that first bite.

Sometimes Id sit there, patiently waiting
for the fruit to ripen on the vine.
No one could see me up in the tree
in that special hiding place of mine.

And that summer, oh it was long
till the fruit into fruition came.
Still a bit early, but you know the old song
oh Mom, the stomach pain!
