A Jack Black-inspired rock epic telling the story of how Lemonade fairies save their precious land from a scary dragon, all via the power of generosity and kindness. "Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend." Martin Luther King, Jr.

lyrics

VERSE 1
Long ago in a faraway time
Or maybe it was just a dream of mine
There lived a people small and kind
In a land called Lemonade
They were much like our fairy-folk
With wings of silk and eyes of smoke
They had hearts of gold and magic souls
And how they loved their home

BRIDGE
And the lemon trees bloomed all around all around
And the lemon trees bloomed all around
And the sugar cane grew all around all around
And the sugar cane grew all around
And the water flowed all around all around
And the water flowed all around
And the people danced all around all around
And the people danced all around (singin’)

VERSE 2
The people lived inside the trees
Right alongside those honeybees
And they shared the air with the birds and the fleas
And the bats and the butterflies
They made a life with their very own hands
Ploughed the earth and tilled the land
And the sunshine smiled and the breeze blew fine
In the land called Lemonade

BRIDGE
CHORUS
The trees make the lemons
The earth grows the sugar cane
The sky pours down the water
And the people make the
Lemonade lemonade
Don't you want some lemonade
Lemonade lemonade
Don't you want some lemonade
You know you want some you know I got some
Lemo lemo lemo lemonade
You know we got some you know you want some
Don't you want some lemonade

VERSE 3
One day an angry dragon came
To smite the people with his flame
To burn their trees and scorch their earth
And dry up all the streams and lakes
They thought wow this guy is really mean
The nastiest evil we’ve ever seen
Let us offer him a drink
From our crystal chalice full of lemonade

VERSE 4
So they mixed him up a special brew
Pit a little mint in for something new
And offered it to that dragon
In the spirit of love and generosity
And he smiled the way only dragons can
And he turned his life right around right then
And he never used fire for evil again
In the land called Lemonade

BRIDGE
DOUBLE CHORUS
The trees make the lemons
The earth grows the sugar cane
The sky pours down the water
And the people make the
Lemonade lemonade
Don't you want some lemonade
Lemonade lemonade
Don't you want some lemonade
You know you want some you know I got some
Lemo lemo lemo lemonade
You know we got some you know you want some
Don't you want some lemonade
lemon trees sugar cane
Water from the fairy lake
Don't you want some lemonade
Squeeze it up dump it in
Stir it with your fairy stick
Don't you want some lemonade
You know you want some you know we got some
Lemo lemo lemo lemonade
You know we got some we know you want some
Don't you want some lemonade

TAG
And that is how the fighting ends
When enemies turn into friends
And we all lay down our angry fire
And share our lemonade
