Fresh Cherries in Trinidad is the 12th song on The Mountain Goats' fourth cassette, Hot Garden Stomp.


When I woke up on Saturday and you came in
And you brought the sunlight in
I felt sleep slipping away from me
I feel things occasionally like this
Fresh cherries
Hanging from your fingers

When the water on the window let the sunlight through
And I got a good look at you
Standing above me bright and tall
There are no words for it
There are no words at all, I saw
Fresh cherries
Hanging from your fingers
