Meats, foods, and vegetables,
Grains and dairy,
There's a town in Indiana known as Gary,
And it's quite scary,

Let's wander into the desert,
So I can look into your eyes,
Let's wander into the desert,
And see which one of us dies first,
Most likely gonna be of thirst,
Man that idea's the worst,

It makes no sense to marry Claire De Lune,
She's a treasure chest with nary a doubloon
I kissed her on the Earth side of the moon,
I don't know when her time is coming but mine's coming soon,

Snowcaps, Jujubes, and Raisinettes,
I'm going to Las Vegas going to place some bets,
Do all my betting off track,
Always bet on black,

Let's go into the jungle and dance around like a jerk,
Let's go out to the jungle to do some field work,
Observe the ways of the gorilla,
Study the gorilla,

Me and gorilla gonna have a good time,
Me and gorilla gonna have a good time,
Me and my best girl gonna have a good time,

It makes no sense to marry Claire De Lune,
She's a treasure chest with nary a doubloon
I kissed her on the Earth side of the moon,
I don't know when her time is coming but mine's coming soon,

    General CommentThis is a strange song. My interpretation is a little rough but here's some food for thought.

    Clair de Lune is French for moonlight (which means Dick may have been lying on "I Don't Speak French)

    "she's a treasure chest with nary a doubloon" probably means she has nothing to offer the narrator (whether it be money or a metaphor for something else) so why should he marry her.

    I think this song might be about a relationship that is built on one component--probably sex--but outside of this main component their isn't anything else. They don't have anything to talk about. The beginning of the first and second verses might be examples of their worthless conversations: "Meats, foods and vegetables..."

    The treasure chest might mean that she is attractive/looks good on the outside but has nothing on the inside, in terms of intelligence.
