A moonbeam through the prune
In June
Reveals your chest
I see your lovely beans
And in that magic go-kart
I bite your neck
The cheese I have for you
My dear
Is real
And very new!

A moonbeam through the prune
In June
Reveals your chest
I see your lovely beans
And in that magic go-kart
I bite your neck
The love I have for you
My dear
Is real
And very new!

Doh-Doh-Doh Doh-Doh

Prune!
(Pah-Da-Dahhh!)
If it is a real prune...
(Pah-Da-Dahhh!)
Knows no cheese!
(Chunka Chunk . . .
Chunka Chunka Chunka Chunka Chunk . . . )
And stands . . .
(Oh No-o-o-o!)
Taller & stronger
Than any tree
Or bush!
And I know
The love I have for you
Will grow & grow & grow
I think
And so my love
I offer you
A love that is strong
A prune that is true!

    My InterpretationI'm pretty sure this song is completely full of innuendos, and that sounds like something Zappa would do for sure. Several keywords seem like they could be metaphors for body parts. In a way, the song sounds like it's about a one night stand. The only thing that doesn't make sense to me is the use of the word Cheese.

    My InterpretationFrank was obviously quite cynical on the notion of "romantic love", c.f. Broken Hearts are for Assholes, I Ain't Got No Heart, etc.. This song to me is a hilarious parody of seduction and romance and "the Magic Go-Kart" is a brilliant metaphor for the nonsensical state of mind we inhabit when oxytocin is flooding our synapses.
