The Lyrics

In real life my granny was the one who made it very sweet (lol).
When I was just a lad of ten, my granny said to me,
Come here and have a drink of this lovely lemon tea.
Don't get so hooked on sugar, boy, my granny said to me,
'Cause sugar's not as healthy as this lovely lemon tea.

Lemon tea, very sour and the lemon flavor's strong,
I'm sorry, my dear granny, but I can't drink this very long!
Lemon tea, very sour and the lemon flavor's strong,
I'm sorry, my dear granny, but I can't drink this very long!

One serving of the lemon tea was sure enough for me!
I like my tea so sweet that some would call it syrupy.
I passed that summer cringing from my granny's lemon tea,
At night I made it my way 'til she hid the sugar from me.

Lemon tea, very sour and the lemon flavor's strong,
I'm sorry, my dear granny, but I can't drink this very long!
Lemon tea, very sour and the lemon flavor's strong,
I'm sorry, my dear granny, but I can't drink this very long!

One day I left without a word, to brew some in the sun,
And bought some sugar at the store, but she knew what I had done.
She'd told me if I kept this up, one day I'd have no teeth,
And I'd be hyperactive and I'd give my parents grief.

Lemon tea, very sour and the lemon flavor's strong,
I'm sorry, my dear granny, but I can't drink this very long!
Lemon tea, very sour and the lemon flavor's strong,
I'm sorry, my dear granny, but I can't drink this very long!

Lemon tea, lemon tea, lemon tea, lemon tea....
