Lemon Tree Lyrics

When I was bit little boy my father said to me

Come here and take a lesson from the lovely Lemon Tree

Don't put your faith in love my boy my father said to me

I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely Lemon Tree

Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat

Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat

 

One day beneath the Lemon Tree my love and I did lie

A girl so sweet that when she smiled the stars rose in the sky

We passed that summer lost in love beneath the lemon tree

The music of her laughter hid my father's words from me

Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat

Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

 

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat

One day she left without a word She took away the sun

And in the dark she left behind I knew what she had done

She'd left me for another it's a common tale but true

A sadder man but wiser now I sing these words to you

Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat

Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat
