Lemon Tree

When I was just a lad of ten
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 fathers 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'd 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

lemon tree... lemon tree.. lemon tree... lemon tree
