(Here We Go Round) The Lemon Tree

  • Lyrics
  • There's a girl next door to me who's round the bend
    But she wonders why she can't make any friends
    From her garden she could see me
    In her silver-clad bikini
    Singing, dancing round her fruit tree

    Here we go round the lemon tree
    Mister, can't you hear me
    Here we go round the lemon tree
    Mister, don't come near me

    Could I calm her down by throwing stones at her
    If only I could make the right approach to her
    Think I'd rather tame a tiger
    Turn those lemons into cider
    Still I'd like to get beside her

    Here we go round the lemon tree
    Mister, can't you hear me
    Here we go round the lemon tree
    Mister, don't come near me

    Three o'clock in the morning
    I could her her toneless singing
    I could smell her lemon perfume in the air
    I walked up to the window
    In the hope that I might see her
    Could the deadly shade of night still bring her there

    Here we go round the lemon tree
    Mister, can't you hear me
    Here we go round the lemon tree
    Mister, don't come near me

    Morning came and into action went my plans
    Went to meet her dressed in bright green underpants
    I crept in and sang discreetly
    Seemed to change your mind discreetly
    Danced together singing sweetly

    Here we go round the lemon tree
    Mister, can't you hear me
    Here we go round the lemon tree
    Mister, don't come near me

    Here we go round the lemon tree
    Mister, can't you hear me
    Here we go round the lemon tree
    Mister, don't come near meWriter/s: ROY WOOD
