Pucker up

Love and lemons
Pucker up, girls and boys
Ladies and gentleman
Because love and lemons 
are not so very different 
You can pretend love works
Sometimes, anyway
That there is "The One" and
"Sometimes you just know"
But really, love is yellow fruit
With a sugar coating.
Eventually the sour overcomes the sweet
Eventually, you have to start pretending.
So pucker up, lads and lasses
Make the face that comes with lemons
Or when you are about to kiss someone
See? Love and lemons. One in the same.
There are no sweet lemons
So pucker up.
