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.

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.
