C chordC C chordC
[Verse 1]
C chordC E7 chordE7
There once was a bittersweet man and they called him Lemon Boy
F chordF Dm chordDm G chordG
He was growing in my garden and I pulled him out by his hair like a weed
C chordC E7 chordE7
And like weeds do he only came and grew back again
F chordF Dm chordDm G chordG
So I figured this time I might as well let him be


[Chorus]
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm
Lemon Boy and me started to get along together
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm
I'd help him plant his seeds and we mowed the lawn in bad weather
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm F chordF
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
G chordG C chordC
So I got myself a citrus friend


[Verse 2]
C chordC E7 chordE7
But soon his bittersweet started to rub off on me
F chordF Dm chordDm G chordG
You'd think smelling like lemon zest would be pretty neat
C chordC E7 chordE7
I found out that my friends are more of the savoury type
F chordF Dm chordDm G chordG
And they weren't too keen on compromising with a nice lemon pie


[Chorus]
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm
So Lemon Boy and me we just gotta get along together
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm
I'll help him plant his seeds and we'll mow the lawn in bad weather
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm F chordF
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
G chordG C chordC
So I got myself a citrus friend


[Bridge]
C chordC E7 chordE7
But what if I run out of fertiliser
F chordF Dm chordDm G chordG
What if the clouds run out of rain
F chordF C chordC
What if Lemon Boy won't grow no longer
E7 chordE7 F chordF
What if the beaches dry of sugarcane

Oh well

C chordC
The whales start to beach themselves
E7 chordE7 F chordF
The tortoise shells tear away from their spines
Dm chordDm G chordG C chordC
It happens all the time it happens all the time


[Pre-Chorus]
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm
Lemon Boy and I we're gonna live forever
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm
Like Snufkin and Little My we'll get around wherever


[Chorus]
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm
Lemon Boy and I we're gonna live forever
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm
Like Snufkin and Little My we'll get around wherever
F chordF C chordC E7 chordE7 Am chordAm F chordF
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him


[Outro]
G chordG F chordF
Cause we're the bitterest boys in town
G chordG F chordF
Yeah we're the bitterest guys around
G chordG C chordC
And I got myself a citrus friend
