The Lemon


When life gives you
A lemon, do
Not make some lemonade..
You want an a-
Pple, it's a ba-
Ttle, life against you, mate..


By any means
Achieve your dreams
And don't settle for less..
Do calculate
Each move you make
For life's a game of chess..


So now, when you
Get lemons, do
Not make some lemonade..
Just throw them back! !
Fire! ! Attack! !
And get your apples, mate! !
