"Mary the Ice Cube" as written by Les Claypool, Reid L. Iii Lalonde and Timothy W. Alexander....
I once had an ice cube, pretty little ice cube.
Now it's gone, now it's gone.
Her name was Mary, pretty little ice cube.
Now she's gone, now she's gone.
She was so shiny, my pretty little ice cube.
Now she's gone. Where's she gone?
She's gone with the others, the shiny little ice cubes. Movin' on. Movin' on.
Shes' gone.
Doesn't nothing ever last forever?
I miss my ice cube.
Pretty little ice cube.
Since she's withdrawn.
I held her in my hand, my chilly little ice cube.
Was it wrong? Was it wrong?
She slipped away, my moist little ice cube, to oblivion.
Oblivion!
She left me standing with tears on my face,
on the lawn.
So I wrote this song.
Pretty little ice cube where have you gone?
Doesn't nothing ever last forever?

It's been declared that it's not wise to prize something too much.
I just wish to find something to fondle and to touch so gently.

Doesn't nothing ever last forever?

    General CommentI just recently saw the DVD "Blame It On the Fish" and in there Les is interviewed about this song. He mentions that it was about a man who loved an ice cube, but that he had a friend of his who had been going through some marital problems, who told Les that this song meant alot to him, as it seemed to tie into his situation saying that his wife once loved him, but had started to turn cold and melt away from him.

    The point of lyrics is that they are suppose to be designed to be interpreted by different people...if you wanna believe the song means nothing, then do so, just don't belittle those who think more then that.
