Lyrics

Christmas is

Written By: Davo Colona

Shiny wrapping paper, lots of ribbons and bows.
In the shopping malls, people come and go.
Lots of joy and singing, sleigh bells in the snow.
All the children wishes, Santa Claus he knows.

See the lights shining on the Christmas tree,
presents underneath, smell the homemade cookies.
Chestnuts roasting, turkey baking, mashed potatoes ham.
Mom and dad, all the kids, Grandpa and Gram.

The church bells ring and play their song.
Children asleep, waiting for Santa Claus.
But, don't forget, the most important thing, that
Christmas is -- love.

Noise in the street, as children run and play.
Santa Claus is coming, this is their big day.
Hustle, bustle, fussing, running here and there,
all the people stressing, until the day is here.

Should I buy this, or should I buy that?
sweater, bracelet, TV, gloves and a hat.
Kitten for the girls, some toys for the boys.
See the many faces filled with Christmas joy.

The church bells ring and play their song.
Children asleep, waiting for Santa Claus.
But, don't forget, the most important thing, that
Christmas is -- love.

Pray for the loved ones that have passed on,
they live in our hearts and they live in our songs.
In the evening, go to church, give thanks and pray.
Then we watch the children in the Christmas play.

See the stars shinging upon Christmas eve.
Santa Claus is coming, just go to sleep, believe.
God is watching over, bless us all we pray,
that we'll be together upon Christmas day.

As we gather around the Christmas tree,
See the angel treetop shine and gleam.

The church bells ring and play their song.
Children asleep, waiting for Santa Claus.
But, don't forget, the most important thing, that
Christmas is -- love.

The Lemonade Tree

Written By: Davo Colona

I was a country boy, she was daddy's girl.
I knew I didn't fit in her perfect world.
But, I cannot change the way that I feel.
Everyday, I'd see her as I worked in the field.
I would smile at her, she would smile at me.
Then, I see her daddy frown, as he pointed his finger at me.

Everyday, when it was time for me to take my break.
I'd put on my shirt, and lay down my rake.
I'd walk over to the shade treeon the hill.
I'd sit down on the ground and begin to eat my meal.
Then, here she'd come with ice cold lemonade.
I'd say thank you, as I rested in the shade.

I had this funny feeling, almost each and every day.
I'd look at her, and didn't know what to say.
Her daddy didn't think, that I was the right man,
I was a country boy, a simple farm hand.
Maybe he's right and my feelings I should hide.
But, shouldn't that be up to her to decide.

I fell in love underneath the lemonade tree,
I felt so special, when she'd smile at me.
As, I looked her in the eye, I could not believe,
that she was in love with a country boy like me.

Then one summer day, underneath the lemonade tree,
I smiled and got down on my bended knee.
She stood there looking beautiful as can be.
Then, I asked her if she would marry me.
A tear rolled down her face and landed on her dress.
She smiled at me and said the answer is yes.

We made love underneath the lemonade tree.
It was the perfect day for her and me.
Hold me, hold me, tight as can be.
I told her her, I'd love her for all eternity.

That's my story and it ended quite well.
Her daddy finally gave in as you can tell.
I'll never forget that special summer day,
when we both drank that ice cold lemonade.
So, you see, a country boy like me,
found true love underneath the lemonade tree.

I fell in love underneath the lemonade tree,
I felt so special, when she'd smile at me.
As, I looked her in the eye, I could not believe,
that she was in love with a country boy like me.
