When Life Gives You Lemons…

Reading time: 2 – 4 minutes

Well, people did not like that I had my morbidly mopey moment yesterday when posted the balloon song, so I just The Boy Least Likely Towant to clarify that I DO NOT feel permanently like the song sings… I just thought it a rather universal feeling we all can relate to at one point or another.

So on a much lighter note, I wanted to give your theme song for the week ahead! For the year ahead! Of course, this song is far more along the lines of a Troy Theme for life… Sing along with me now!

Still in celebration of THE BOY LEAST LIKELY TO releasing their wonderful, delightful, adult playsongs and lullabies, here is: WHEN LIFE GIVES ME LEMONS, I MAKE LEMONADE from their new album, THE LAW OF THE PLAYGROUND.

I’ve been up
I’ve been down
I’ve always got my head in the clouds
Hoping that I can find
One of them that’s silver-lined
I don’t care
It could rain
All at once on my parade
Because when life gives me lemons
I make lemonade
lemons, I make lemonade

The Law of the Playground

I’ve got a bucket
Filled it with raindrops
Then i put it in the fridge
And now whenever the sun is shining
I make rainbows out of it
I’ve always been a hopeless romantic
Things don’t always go our way
There’s not a lot you can do with lemons
Except make them into lemonade, lemonade, lemonade

I’ve been up
I’ve been down
I’ve always got my head in the clouds
Hoping that I can find
One of them that’s silver-lined
I don’t care
It could rain
All at once on my parade
Because when life gives me lemons
I make lemonade
lemons, I make lemonade

I wake up every morning feeling sad
And I sleep with a light on
Sometimes you go to places in your dreams
That are hard to get back from
And I don’t know what it is I’m afraid of
I just know that I’m afraid
There’s not a lot you can do with lemons
Except make them into lemonade, lemonade, lemonade

I’ve been up
I’ve been down
I’ve always got my head in the clouds
Hoping that I can find
One of them that’s silver-lined
I don’t care
It could rain
All at once on my parade
Because when life gives me lemons
I make lemonade
lemons, I make lemonade
