O Lemon Tree!

Our very own Charlie Brown Christmas tree

Our very own Charlie Brown Christmas tree

O Lemon Tree
Sung to the tune of “O Christmas Tree”

O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
You once had so much promise!
O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
You once had so much promise!
You decked yourself in flow’rs and fruit;
Wee ‘Meyer’ lemons, oh-so-cute.
O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
You once had so much promise!

O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
How brittle are your branches!
O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
How brittle are your branches!
We gave you water, and a trim,
But we must say that things look grim.
O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
How brittle are your branches!

O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
You might bring shame upon us!
O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
You might bring shame upon us!
Our readers trust our plant advice;
When they see you, they might think twice.
O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
You might bring shame upon us!

O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
We’ve cleverly disguised you!
O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
We’ve cleverly disguised you!
With pine boughs from around the town,
And one red ball, like Charlie Brown.
O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
We’ve cleverly disguised you!

O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
To hope you give us reason!
O lemon tree, O lemon tree,
To hope you give us reason!
When folks see you, they pause awhile.
They just can’t help it—they must smile!
And that’s our wish for ev’ryone,
This joyous Yuletide season!

    Amazing! Fabulous! Two thumbs waaay up. I especially like the “we must say that things look grim” part.

    I can hear the sound track to Charlie Brown’s Christmas….

    I still think that tree looks healthier with your Charlie Brown trimmings!
