  1. Lemonade Stand

Lemonade Stand
Aham Smith, Rich Karg

Johnny sells the news from the sidewalk
At a red light, seems like nobody wants it anymore
And his feet are hurting
Man, this job ain’t working
Scratching on his head when the light goes off
He nails a couple boards, finds some yellow chalk
And a sign with an old ice bucket
On a working man’s budget

Starts a lemonade stand, man, he’ll have ‘em standing in line
He’s gonna make it make sense, twenty-five cents at a time

Up and down the block they come from both directions
It’s summertime hot and now it’s stopping traffic
So the cops come along, and shut him down
Sir, you need a permit for that in this town
Up to town hall where he buys a license
Flips the sign around and he ups the prices
To meet the demand of selling citrus
And boom, Johnny’s back in business

At the lemonade stand, man, he’s got ‘em standing in line
He’s gonna make it make sense, seventy-five cents at a time

If it ain’t one thing it’s another
If you count on anything, count on summer to turn into fall
Soon the frost bites
And that’s just life
But you don’t have to tell Johnny twice..

At the hot chocolate stand he’ll have ‘em standing in line
Had his best laid plans, but cryin’ bout ‘em ain’t worth a dime
He’s going to make it make sense, seventy-five cents at a time
