Fool's Garden

Lemon Tree

Lyrics

play I'm sitting here in the   room
play It's just another   Sunday afternoon
play I'm   my time
play I got   to do
play I'm   around
play I'm waiting for you
play But nothing ever happens and I wonder

play I'm   around in my car
play I'm driving too  
play I'm driving too  
play I'd like to change my point of  
play I feel so  
play I'm waiting for you
play But nothing ever happens and I wonder

play I wonder how
play I wonder why
play Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue  
play And all that I can  
play Is just a yellow lemon-tree
play I'm   my   up and down
play I'm turning turning turning
play Turning turning around
play And all that I can see
play Is just a yellow lemon-tree

play I'm sitting here
play I miss the  
play I'd like to go out taking a  
play But there's a heavy   inside my head
play I feel so  
play Put myself into bed
play Well nothing ever happens and I wonder

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

play I'm steppin'   in the desert of joy
play Baby anyhow I'll get another  
play And everything will happen and you wonder

play I wonder how
play I wonder why
play Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
play And all that I can see
play Is just another lemon-tree
play I'm turning my head up and down
play I'm turning turning turning
play Turning turning around
play And all that I can see
play Is just a yellow lemon-tree
play And I wonder, wonder

play I wonder how
play I wonder why
play Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
play And all that I can see,
play And all that I can see,
play And all that I can see
play Is just a yellow lemon-tree

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.
