Lemon Tree

Favorite Line(s):
When I was just a lad of ten,
My father said to me
“Come here and take 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”

Puff The Magic Dragon

Favorite Line(s):
A dragon lives forever,
But not so little boys
Painted wings and giant’s rings
Make way for other toys
One gray night it happened,
Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff, that mighty dragon,
He ceased his fearless roar
His head was bent in sorrow,
Green scales fell like rain
Puff no longer went to play
Along the cherry lane
Without his lifelong friend,
Puff could not be brave
So Puff, that mighty dragon,
Sadly slipped into his cave
Oh, Puff the magic dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In a land called Honah Lee
Puff the magic dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In a land called Honah Lee
Comment(s):
Reading the lyrics as an adult, this is obviously a (somewhat sad) song about the loss of a child’s innocent imagination.  I, however, remember the song as a celebration of imagination and not of loss.  It is funny how the mind plays tricks on us.  The song was released when I was eight years old, but my memory places it back much further in my childhood.  I guess, in my memories, I held onto my “innocent imagination” longer than I thought.  —  KMAB

If I Had a Hammer

If I had a hammer
I’d hammer in the morning
I’d hammer in the evening
All over this land
I’d hammer out danger
I’d hammer out a warning
I’d hammer out love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, uh
If I had a bell
I’d ring it in the morning
I’d ring it in the evening
All over this land
I’d ring out danger
I’d ring out a warning
I’d ring out love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, oh
If I had a song
I’d sing it in the morning
I’d sing it in the evening
All over this land
I’d sing out danger
I’d sing of out a warning
I’d sing out the love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, oh
Well, I’ve got a hammer
And I’ve got a bell
And I’ve got a song to sing
All over this land
It’s the hammer of justice
It’s the bell of freedom
It’s a song about love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land
It’s a hammer of justice
It’s a bell of freedom
It’s a song about love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land
