Burl Ives – The Lollipop Tree lyrics

One fine day in early spring
I played a funny trick
Right in the middle of our backyard
I planted a lollipop stick

Then everyday I watered it well
And watched it carefully
I hoped one day that lollipop stick
Would grow into a lollipop tree

Ha ha-ha, Hee-hee-hee
What a sight to see
Me and my lollipop, lollipop, lollipop, lollie-lollie-lollipop tree

Then one day I woke to find
A very lovely sight
A tree all full of lollipops
had grown in the dark of the night

I sat beneath that wonderful tree
and looked up with a grin
And when I opened up my mouth
A pop would drop right in

Ha-ha-ha, Hee-hee-hee
What a place to be
Under a lollipop, lollipop, lollipop lollie-lollie-lollipop tree

Winter came and days grew cold
As winter days will do
On my tree my lovely tree
Not one little lollipop grew

From every branch an icicle hung
The twigs were bare as bones
But when I broke the icicles off
They turned into ice cream cones

Ha-ha-ha, Hee-hee-hee
How I danced with glee
Under the lollipop, lollipop, lollipop, lollie-lollie-lollipop tree

    I was 12 years when I first heard this song, I sang in at my school Choir. We loved singing this song, so innocent, so warming. Brings back childhood memories. I shared this song with my Siblings. It was one of my sibling that came across the Lyrics and sent me a share. Thank you for bringing be back to those happy childhood days!
