lyrics

Whip it in a lemon meringue.
A touch of pinky makes it sweeter
A little tart and flavor that stays
To warm your insides like a heater
An extra dash of life's ironic
And drama said to make it juicy
Amongst the goodies pushed from my stand
I know you got a couple dollars in your Gucci.

It's everything you need and more
It's nothing that you've offered up
Sometimes, it only gives what it wants
And you can choose to use the good stuff
A roller coaster ride to the deep end
But it knows that you can't swim
Whenever life throw you lemons
Its what you choose to do with them.

When life gives you lemons
You can go and build a lemonade stand
Sell it for a dollar-fifty
Guaranteed to put a little cash in hand
When life hands you lemons, you can build a lemonade stand
You got the choice in your hands.

It's the idea buzzing in your head
But the song that you can't write
A scary flick you wanted to see
But now, yo' ass can't sleep tonight
It's the beautiful poetry
Without the heart of one to give
The curiosity that killed the cat who only had one life to live.

A killer recipe for lemon squares
Decorate with lemon zest
Squeeze a bit into my tea
So much we can do with the rest
Lemon-scented cleaner makes your approach that much meaner
Build a lemonade stand- you got the choice in your hands.

Comprised of soulful vocalist, Adra Boo and DJ/Producer/Emcee Action J
