[Verse 1]
F chordF A7 chordA7
There once was a bittersweet man and they called him Lemon Boy
A# chordA# Gm chordGm C chordC
He was growing in my garden and I pulled him out by his hair like a weed
F chordF A7 chordA7
And like weeds do he only came and grew back again
A# chordA# Gm chordGm C chordC
So I figured this time I might as well let him be


[Chorus]
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm
Lemon Boy and me started to get along together
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm
I'd help him plant his seeds and we mowed the lawn in bad weather
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm A# chordA#
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
C chordC F chordF
So I got myself a citrus friend


[Verse 2]
F chordF A7 chordA7
But soon his bittersweet started to rub off on me
A# chordA# Gm chordGm C chordC
You'd think smelling like lemon zest would be pretty neat
F chordF A7 chordA7
I found out that my friends are more of the savoury type
A# chordA# Gm chordGm C chordC
And they weren't too keen on compromising with a nice lemon pie


[Chorus]
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm
So Lemon Boy and me we just gotta get along together
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm
I'll help him plant his seeds and we'll mow the lawn in bad weather
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm A# chordA#
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
C chordC F chordF
So I got myself a citrus friend


[Bridge]
F chordF A7 chordA7
But what if I run out of fertiliser
A# chordA# Gm chordGm C chordC
What if the clouds run out of rain
A# chordA# F chordF
What if Lemon Boy won't grow no longer
A7 chordA7 A# chordA#
What if the beaches dry of sugarcane

Oh well

F chordF
The whales start to beach themselves
A7 chordA7 A# chordA#
The tortoise shells tear away from their spines
Gm chordGm C chordC F chordF
It happens all the time it happens all the time


[Pre-Chorus]
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm
Lemon Boy and I we're gonna live forever
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm
Like Snufkin and Little My we'll get around wherever


[Chorus]
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm
Lemon Boy and I we're gonna live forever
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm
Like Snufkin and Little My we'll get around wherever
A# chordA# F chordF A7 chordA7 Dm chordDm A# chordA#
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him


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


[Instrumental]
F chordF A7 chordA7 A# chordA# Gm chordGm C chordC
F chordF A7 chordA7 A# chordA# Gm chordGm C chordC F chordF

Love it! However, I do add an A after the Dm in the choruses, it makes it sound more like the song. Great job with the tab!
