When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me
Come here and learn 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

Beneath the lemon tree one day, my love and I did a lie
A girl so sweet that when she smiled the sun 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 left behind, I knew what she had
Done
Shed left me for another, its 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
