Lemon Tree

LEMON TREE(Will Holt)When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to meCome here and take a lesson from the lovely lemon treeDon’t put your faith in love, my boy, my father said to meI 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 eatOne day beneath the lemon tree, my love and I did lieA girl so sweet that when she smiled, the stars rose in the skyWe past that summer lost in love beneath the lemon treeThe music of her laughter hid my fathers word from meOne day she left without a word, she took away the sunAnd in the dark she left behind I knew what she had doneShe left me for another, it’s a common tale but trueA sadder man, but wiser, now I sing these words to youfilename[ LEMONTRESF===DOCUMENT BOUNDARY===
