"Wildberry Pie" as written by and David Patrick Wilcox....
When you pick a sprig of balsam pine,
On your hike along the mountain view,
You can wrap the scent in corduroy,
And bring the mountain home with you.

When you sit beside the ocean's edge
And dream of what might come to be,
Your fingers keep the taste of salt,
From the castles made beside the sea.

I'm lonely at work now,
My hand holds my chin.
And my mischievous fingers remind me,
And cover my grin.

The scent takes me dreaming,
To wildberry pie,
And the wind hits my sails
With the sound of your trembling sigh.

When we work to make a berry pie,
Lips can tell where we have been,
Out picking huckleberries wild,
To bring the harvest home again.

And on the way we sang a tune,
What I said is what I meant,
Our love is like a red, red rose
It leaves a certain subtle scent.

I'm lonely at work now.
My hand holds my chin,
And my mischievous fingers remind me,
And cover my grin.

The scent takes me dreaming,
Of wildberry pie,
And the wind hits my sails
With the sound of your trembling sigh.

And the wind hits my sails
With the sound of your trembling sigh.

    General CommentSee if you can catch the innuendo. Oh God, once someone pointed it out to me, I could never listen to this song without laughing.

    Okay, so it's very metaphorical, but what of Wilcox's songs isn't? What is wildberry pie? Well... yeah, that. "Our love is like a red, red rose -- it leaves a certain subtle scent." -- Not subtle at all, is he? ;-) and then, "I'm lonely at work, now / My hand holds my" .. " chin". And "The scent takes me dreaming" -- what scent is that? Oh, now you get it.

    Ah, cracks me up. It's a very beautiful song, and without that first real listen where the lyrics start making sense, you don't have a clue what it's about.

    " 'David, I came to your concert etc. etc. looking forward to etc. etc. We were very disappointed we had to leave your concert because you had to play that song about Sex.' I don't know why I have to sing songs about sex... I mean they like it when I sing songs about what I believe. I just believe that sex is pretty nice!" -- David Wilcox, live.
