1. LEMON TREE – FOOL’S GARDEN

LEMON TREE

I’m ________ here in the ________ room
It’s just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I’m ________ my time
I got nothing to do
I’m ________ around
I’m ________ for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I’m ________ around in my car
I’m ________ too fast
I’m ________ too far
I’d like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely
I’m ________ for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me ’bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I’m________ my head up and down
I’m turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree

I’m ________ here
I miss the power
I’d like to go out ________ a shower
But there’s a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
While nothing ever happens and I wonder

Isolation is not good for me
Isolation I don’t want to sit on the lemon-tree

I’m ________ around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I’ll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

2. TOM’S DINER – SUZANNE VEGA

I ……………………………………./In the morning/At the diner/On the corner

I ……………………………………./At the counter/For the man/To pour the coffee

And he fills it/Only halfway/And before/I even argue

He ……………………………………./Out the window/At somebody/……………………………………. in
“It is always/Nice to see you”/Says the man/Behind the counter

To the woman/Who has come in/She ……………………………………./Her umbrella

And I look/The other way/As they ……………………………………./Their hellos

I ……………………………………./Not to see them/And Instead/I pour the milk

I open/Up the paper/There’s a story/Of an actor

Who had died/While he was ……………………………………./He was no one/I had heard of

And I……………………………………./To the horoscope/And looking/For the funnies

When I ……………………………………./Someone ……………………………………. me
And so I raise my head

There’s a woman/On the outside/……………………………………. inside/Does she see me?

No she does not/Really see me/Cause she sees/Her own reflection

And I ……………………………………./Not to notice/That she’s hitch……………../Up her skirt

And while she’s/Straighten………….. her stockings/Her hair/……………………………………. wet

Oh, this rain/It will continue/Through the morning/As I …………………………………….

To the bells/Of the cathedral/I ……………………………………./Of your voice…

And of the midnight picnic/Once upon a time/Before the rain began…

I finish up my coffee/It’s time to catch the train
