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!

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.
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)
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)
