Lemon Tree

By | 2005 年 10 月 16 日

突然,静寂无声。想了半天也不知道这样的心境听怎样的歌,却突然想起Peter Paul & Mary,还有这首《Lemon Tree》。

恍然中才意识到,他们的这张《10 Years Together》的CD我居然很久很久都没有听过了,或者说,我已经很久很久都没有再听过CD了……

When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me,
Come here and learn a lesson from the lovely lemon tree.
Don?t put your faith in love, my boy, my father said to me,
I fear you?ll find that love is like the lovely lemon tree.

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

Beneath the lemon tree one day, my love and I did a lie
A girl so sweet that when she smiled the sun rose in the sky.
We passed that summer lost in love beneath the lemon tree
The music of her laughter hid my father?s words from me:

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

One day she left without a word. she took away the sun.
And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done.
She?d left me for another, it?s a common tale but true.
A sadder man but wiser now I sing these words to you:

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

    这也叫lemon tree啊

    我听的一首lemon tree 是德国乐队fool’s garden的

    I’m sitting here in a boring room.
    It’s just another rainy Sunday afternoon.

    也很不错的

    虽然苏慧伦翻唱过,但是觉得全没了味道
