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

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

She was so shiny,
My Purty little ice cube
Now she's gone
Where she gone?
She's gone with the others
The shiny little ice cubes
Movin' on. Movin' on.

She's gone
Doesn't nothin' ever last forever?

I miss my ice cube
Purty 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Since she's withdrawn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, oblivion

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

Purty little ice cube
Where have you gone?

Doesn't nothing ever last forever?

Now she's gone
Nothing ever lasts forever

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
Flaunt the right to
Touch so gently

Doesn't nothing ever last forever?
