Liner Notes

As I was singing this, I came to the conclusion that it is a good thing pumpkins focus on entertaining us and don’t protest.

[EDIT] This song of woe has brought my son (6 yo.) to tears.

Lyrics

Hello, my little pumpkin
I’m glad you’re here.
I’ve been waiting, oh so long,
for you to appear.

It’s almost harvest time!
And don’t you fear!
It will be a
gentle experience.

Of course, you know, that you must be detached
from the parent whom you grew to.
Of course, you know, that you must be detached
so you can go on your way.

Just like me, I had to be detached
from the parents I knew in my youth.
Detached and rolling
down the hill of life until I’m through.

But you, my pumpkin, you’re very small
and you don’t roll that well.
I’ll carry you where you will go,
Quite, quite, quite, quite well.

Little pumpkin, don’t you fear.
You see I’ve brought some others.
Lovely little pumpkins
inside my home.

I need to prepare some things,
get some things all ready to go.
And soon it will your time!
Soon it will your time to shine!

Oh, little, little pumpkin.
I suppose you are larger than I say.
You’re about 15 lbs, give or take,
but it’s small compared to others.

Little pumpkin, don’t you fret
it’s going to be a glorious set.
The crusts are all quite prepared
and ready to go!

Little pumpkin, thank you for
waiting so patiently.
You did not get upset.
You did not throw a tantrum.

Now you are ready.
I’ve brought the knife.
And it’s time to begin
and end your life.

You see I’m making pie,
and you are the filling.
You’ll be quite filling in my belly,
and the bellies of the people
eating these great pies.
I have almost a dozen.
You might be the last tonight.

Oh, little, little pumpkin.
I appreciate your life.
It was oh, so pretty,
and so is my wife.

You see we are selling glorious pies
all decked out in our finery.
We expect to make a profit,
and it only cost you your life.
