"Fruit Nut" as written by and Colin Ivor Moulding....
Tending my fruit, tending my fruit
Ah you've got to have a hobby
A man must have a shed to keep him sane

Spraying my buds, spraying my buds
Got to keep away diseases
I mix the poisons and the wife don't complain

Some people say
That I am out of my tree
Or just a strawberry fool
Someday they'll see
'Til then I'll blow you a raspberry
'cause apples and pears are me

So I'm tending my fruit
And I don't give a hoot
'Cause it keeps me sane, it keeps me sane

Some people say
That I am out of my tree
Or just a strawberry fool
Someday they'll see
'Til then I'll blow you a raspberry
'Cause apples and pears are me

So I'm tending my fruit, tending my fruit
Ah you've got to have a hobby
A man must have a shed to keep him sane
To keep him sane, to keep him sane, to keep him sane

Oh the wife can't complain
To keep him sane, to keep him sane, yeah keeps him sane
Yeah to keep him sane, to keep him sane, yeah it keeps him sane

    General CommentJust what it says. It's about a fellow who loves to garden, and his wife feels uncared for because he's too busy gardening to pay attention to her

    General CommentThis song is awesome. It sounds pleasant and cheerful and not at all wrong at first, but it gets creepier once you think about it.

    It's about a guy who is completely psychotic. He believes that he cannot possibly be insane, since he's got a hobby that keeps him sane. He tells this to himself constantly.

    His wife cannot complain because she is dead. He murdered her, likely by poisoning her with pesticides. He stuffed her in the shed, so that he'll never see her rotting corpse, hence, why a man must have a shed to keep him sane. Otherwise it'll be out there in plain sight, and it'd be more difficult for him to keep up his delusions of sanity.

    People are trying to get him to get some help, since they've seen that his behavior is extremely erratic, but he refuses to listen to a word they say. He possibly plans to kill them too. ("Someday they'll see . . .")

    Fantastically demented song.
