Of all the trees that blossom,
A father told his son,
The fairest is the lemon tree
Who wears a snow-white crown.
The fairest is the lemon tree:
The early bloom’s the best.
The secret is that marriage
Rarely has the zest.

Chorus: Though her eyes be like the moon,
Her smile, like the stars,
Don’t put your faith in love, my boy.
Just pick them up in bars.
