$uccess is addictive.
I remember back when I was ten
To my name I had not a dollar, franc or yen
My father was a strict man
Of pocket money he wasn’t a fan
He said, make it on your own
For that, I’ll give a small loan
So I went and bought wood, lemons and glue
I didn’t know if I got too many or too few
My first batch was far too sweet
The expectations of my customers I did not meet
I mixed and poured and tried again
Until I found the recipe ye ken
Eventually I found a mix of sweet and tasty
I had not rushed, nor was I hasty
I worked all summer and winter too
I would stand for hours, forgoing the loo
I made myself a couple of bucks
And discovered that poverty sucks
Since then I have worked harder than ever
My business motto is never say never
And now that I possess a company grand
I must give thanks to that humble lemonade stand!
Thank you for listening.
