Primus – Mary The Ice Cube lyrics

I once had an ice cube,
Pretty little ice cube
Now it's gone
Now it's gone

Her name was Mary,
Pretty little ice cube
Now she's gone
Now she's gone

She was so shiny,
My pretty little ice cube
Now she's gone
Where's she gone?

She's gone with the others,
The shiny little ice cubes
Movin' on
Movin' on
She's gone

Doesn't nothing ever last forever?

I miss my ice cube
Pretty little ice cube
Since she's withdrawn

I held her in my hand,
My chilly little ice cube
Was it wrong?
Was it wrong?

She slipped away,
My moist little ice cube,
To oblivion

She left me standing,
With tears on my face,
On the lawn
So I wrote this song

Pretty little ice cube,
Where have you gone?
Doesn't nothing ever last forever?

It's been declared,
That it's not wise to prize something too much
I just wish to find something
To fondle and to touch so gently

Doesn't nothing ever last forever?
