Lemon Tree (traditional)

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


Beneath the lemon tree one day

My love and I did lie

A girl so sweet that when she smiled

The sun rose in the sky

We passed the summer lost in love

Beneath the lemon tree

The music of her laughter hid

My father's words from me

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 left me for another

It's a common tale but true

A sadder man but wiser now

I sing this song to you
