This song encourages us to count our blessings; life is much more often lemonade than it is lemons. We don’t deserve the blessed life most of us live!
Bible Reference… Psalm 1:1-3; 23:1-4; 2Corinthians 9:8; Philippians 4:19; James 1:17

So go ahead and ask her for “happy ever after”,
’cause nobody knows what’s coming. So, why not take a chance on loving?
Come on! Pour the glass and tempt me; either half-full or half-empty,
’cause if it all comes down to flavor, the glass is tipping in my favor.

        CHORUS:
        Life gave me lemonade, and I can’t imagine why!
        Born on a sunny day, beneath a tangerine sky,
        I live life without pretending. I’m a sucker for happy endings.
        Thanks for the lemonade! Thanks for the lemonade!

Now, take your time to answer me, for the beauty of romancing;
is to calm your trembling hand with mine while begging love to fill your eyes?
I can hardly breathe while waiting to find out what your heart is saying.
And, as we’re swirling in this flavor, the world is tilting in our favor. (CHORUS)

        CODA:
        I’ve got it made; rest in the shade.
        And hold my love while God above
        stirs with a spoon. We share the moon.
        Smile at the bees; more sugar, please.
        He really loves us after all.
        We’re gonna need another straw. We’re gonna need another straw. (CHORUS)
