Lemon Merango Tango
Lyrics

My friends and I were sitting
among some lemon trees
It was so relaxing
Until we felt a breeze
The smell of lovely lemons
Came wafting through the sky
And all that we could find to say
Was Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi

It was the Lemon Merango Tango Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi
Ayi-yi-yi I'm in heaven
When the Lemon tree's nearby

Now if you hold the lemon
Up close beside your nose
It is so much sweeter
Than any kind of rose
This lovely lemon tango
Is easy as lemon pie
And if you want to sing along...sing
Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi

It was the Lemon Merango Tango Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi
Ayi-yi-yi I'm in heaven
When the Lemon tree's nearby

(spoken)
Oh you're singing my song, It's so beautiful. I love those Ay-yi-yi's. Everybody say Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi
Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi
Louder
Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi


Oh that's nice but it reminds me of the lemon groves of home and all my old friends who were cut down to make a highway. It makes me so sad to think of it. But now Canada is my new home and I love it here. It's so big and has so many nice trees. Oh I feel like dancing. I want to hear a tango rhythm-Slow-Slow-quick-quick-Slow
Hands clapping-Feet stomping. Oh yes!!
-for you I 'll do a tango.
Have a lemon it's on me!


It was the Lemon Merango Tango Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi
Ayi-yi-yi I'm in heaven
When the Lemon tree's nearby
