lyrics

[E, G#7, A, F#m, B]
There once was a bitter sweet man and they called him Lemon Boy
He was growing in my garden and I pulled him out by his hair like a weed
But like weeds do he only came and grew back again
So I figured this time I might as well let him be

[A, E, G#7, F#m, B]
Lemon Boy and me started to get along together
I helped him plant his seeds and we'd mow the lawn in bad weather
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
So I got myself a citrus friend

[E, G#7, A, F#m, B]
But soon his bitter sweet started to rub off on me
You'd think smelling like lemon zest would be pretty neat
I found out that my friends are more of the savoury type
And they weren't too keen on compromising with a nice lemon pie

[A, E, G#7, F#m, B]
So Lemon Boy and me, we just gotta get along together
I'll help him plant his seeds and we'll mow the lawn in bad weather
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
So I got myself a citrus friend

[E, G#7, A, Am; A, E, G#7, A, Am; E, G#7, A, Am, F#m, B]
But what if I run out of fertiliser
What if the clouds run out of rain
What if Lemon Boy won't grow no longer
What if beaches dry of sugar cane
Oh well
The whales start to beach themselves
Tortoise shells tear away from their spines
It happens all the time, it happens all the time

[A, E, G#7, F#m, B]
Lemon Boy and I, we're gonna live forever
Like Snufkin and Little My, we'll get around wherever
Lemon Boy and I, we're gonna live forever
Like Snufkin and Little My, we'll get around wherever
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
'Cause we're the bitterest boys in town
Yeah we're the bitterest guys around
And I got myself a citrus friend

[E, G#7, A, Am, F#m, B]

from LEMON BOY, released January 1, 2018
Lemon Boy is the anxiety, the negativity, the illness that's inside all of us, and that is very strong inside me. A way of being happy for me is disassociating myself from those things, but also learning to live alongside them as a friend. I really hate Lemon Boy sometimes but he's never going away, and I can use him for good (this album for instance).
