Fool's Garden

Lemon Tree

Lyrics

playI'm sitting here in the boring room
playIt's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
playI'm wasting my time
playI got nothing to do
playI'm hanging around
playI'm waiting for you
playBut nothing ever happens and I wonder

playI'm driving around in my car
playI'm driving too fast
playI'm driving too far
playI'd like to change my point of view
playI feel so lonely
playI'm waiting for you
playBut nothing ever happens and I wonder

playI wonder how
playI wonder why
playYesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
playAnd all that I can see
playIs just a yellow lemon-tree
playI'm turning my head up and down
playI'm turning turning turning
playTurning turning around
playAnd all that I can see
playIs just a yellow lemon-tree

playI'm sitting here
playI miss the power
playI'd like to go out taking a shower
playBut there's a heavy cloud inside my head
playI feel so tired
playPut myself into bed
playWell nothing ever happens and I wonder

playIsolation is not good for me
playIsolation I don't want to sit on the lemon-tree

playI'm steppin' around in the desert of joy
playBaby anyhow I'll get another toy
playAnd everything will happen and you wonder

playI wonder how
playI wonder why
playYesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
playAnd all that I can see
playIs just another lemon-tree
playI'm turning my head up and down
playI'm turning turning turning
playTurning turning around
playAnd all that I can see
playIs just a yellow lemon-tree
playAnd I wonder, wonder

playI wonder how
playI wonder why
playYesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
playAnd all that I can see,
playAnd all that I can see,
playAnd all that I can see
playIs just a yellow lemon-tree

Play with the song, fill the gaps

meaningMeaning

The song writer told, that it has no meaning. He likes the sound of the word "lemon tree". He hope that nobody has to interpret it in school, because it is just a meaningless write-away.

He was waiting in the car for his girlfriend. She was finisching her make-up and he wrote the song. That is the whole story.
