Our Mother's house
Hides behind two giant trees
They stand and guard the path
Sliding feet on Autumn leaves to

(chorus)
Mother's house
Our Mother's house
Our Mother's house

(verse 2)
There was no TV till I was ten
Ain't that a shame
But we read books and played outside
Hid in the den from snow and rain by

(chorus)
Mother's house
Our Mother's house
Our Mother's house

(verse 3)
We came back home from school
Our dad had built a Pirate ship
The kids from all around
Came for a look, it was a hit for

(chorus)
Mother's house
Our Mother's house
Our Mother's house

(verse 4)
The boy who lived next door
Would have a piece in sauce for meals
Then he'd push me down the street
Within a cart made from pram wheels near

Mother's house
Our Mother's house
Our Mother's house

Father sewed some tents
From World War Two silk parachutes
We'd sometimes battle through the night
In our back yard till morning dew covered

Track Name: Barely Regal
Bubblegum Lemonade - Barely Regal


(verse 1)
Born to rule over us
She gave him an heir
Then gave him a spare
The old men are still behind the wheel
They play the game of thrones
And they're playing for real

(chorus)
All heirs and no graces
All heirs and no graces

(verse 2)
God knows the sun never sets
On an empire that shows no regrets
The newspapers folded in line
They're not in danger
They're just killing time

(chorus)
All heirs and no graces
All heirs and no graces...

(verse 3)
Born to rule over us
She gave him an heir
Then gave him a spare
The old men are still behind the wheel
They play the game of thrones
And they're playing for real

(chorus)
All heirs and no graces
All heirs and no graces...

(end section)
Born to rule over...

Track Name: When Life Gives You Lemons
Bubblegum Lemonade - When Life Gives You Lemons


(intro)
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do...

(verse 1)
My eyes aren't what they were
And my ear is shot to pieces
My limbs move on their own
And the doubt, it never ceases

(chorus)
When life gives you lemons, make Lemonade
Shower while the clouds rain on your parade
When life gives you lemons
When life gives you lemons

(bridge)
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do...

(verse 2)
It's not me, to just wait
And in the end, it's some kind of lesson
When I fell at the starting gate
Got a second chance, on a first impression

(chorus)
When life gives you lemons, make Lemonade
Shower while the clouds rain on your parade
When life gives you lemons
When life gives you lemons

(bridge)
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do...

(verse 3)
My eyes aren't what they were
And my ear is shot to pieces
My limbs move on their own
And the doubt, it never ceases

(end chorus)
When life gives you lemons, make Lemonade
Shower while the clouds rain on your parade
When life gives you lemons
When life gives you lemons
Smile...
