(Here We Go Round) The Lemon Tree

  • Lyrics
  • This Roy Wood composition was meant to be an A-side but was released as the B-side of "Flowers In The Rain." Recorded at Advision Sound Studios on March 23, 1967, it was covered by The Idle Race but was released in the US only. The Move's version was produced by Danny Cordell. >>

  • This song tells a rather strange story: Our hero is smitten by young lady in a silver bikini who dances around a lemon tree. Despite her "toneless singing," he wants desperately to meet her, so he puts on bright green underpants, waits by her window and creeps in to see her. His plan seems to work, as by the end of the song they are dancing together, singing sweetly.
