lemonade
c. 2003

if you dreamt about an orange,
aren’t ya wakin' wantin’ orange juice?
the morning monkey’s getting funky and banana’ be hangin loose
if the day brings you apples falling on your head
come the eve of eve, you know adam is to wed
if at dusk you find a pear
be sure to drink the juice
but when the night brings you olives
you just gotta say i love you
but when life gives you lemons...
you better make ..... lemonade
lemon (it’s time to make ..... lemonade)lemonade
lemon (it’s time to make ..... lemonade) lemonade

if your grace brings you pineapple
please pay the pickle sour sweet
if tomato beets red your face
sometimes you must sow what you reap
if you ever meet a girl named cherry
please tell her i’m sorry ... didn’t mean to rain on her parade
if you see marion barry , matthew perry or darrel strawberry,
give them a kick in the aspargus for me
cause when life gives you lemons...
when life gives you lemons....
you better make lemonade (lemon lemonade)
it’s time to make lemonade (lemon lemonade)
when life gives you lemons...


when life gives you lemons....
when all you got is lemons ...
when life gives you lemons....
when all you got is lemons ...
it’s time to make lemonade (lemon lemonade)
you gotta make lemonade (lemon lemonade)
lemon lemonade (when life gives you lemons)
lemon lemonade (when life gives you lemons)
