CocoRosie - Lemonade Lyrics

It was Cinco de Mayo
Pillow case on his head
No more breathing time
An ambulance sped
Sped 'round every corner
Calling out his name

Shot a rabbit from the back seat window
Sat and watched the summer corn grow
Ate ice cream in a desert dream
And got lost in father's singing
Too hot inside
Too hot outside
Lazy days when I said let's go for a ride
We'll sail on Spirit Lake
Me, my pappy, and his lemonade

Tim and Tina were my parents' names
They got engaged
They were inflamed
Seduced by the light of butterflies
How they shimmer, how they glimmer
Those butterflies

We seven kids
We almost died
Nearly put to death
By lightening strikes
Instead there was hot, pink
Flashes in the sky
We climbed the rocks, in snow and rain
In search of magic powers
To heal our mother's pain

Shot a rabbit from the back seat window
Sat and watched the summer corn grow
Ate ice cream in a desert dream
And got lost in father's singing
Too hot inside
Too hot outside
Lazy days when I said let's go for a ride
We'll sail on Spirit Lake
Me, my pappy, and his lemonade

    There's much to dislike about the 21st century, but to find something as wonderful as this by accident whilst I'm meant to be working is a complete joy! Thank you YouTube and CocoRosie.

  30. Helene Genty

    the reference to Dark Crystal !!! I hadn't noticed before !! love it ...

  31. Willz __

    This was a weird ass time in music..... I still don't know wtf to make or how to feel about this.

  32. siranmg

    Love this!

  33. Tinglish Foxxie

    So basically this song is an interpretation of the bipolar disorder

  34. Nicholas Snyder

    I came up with a theory about the music video. I may be wrong but eh. I feel like its life and death's childhood years and they're singing what theyve experienced in their childhood. Notice how when death sings ( her voice is frail and dry) they're always old and seem to be on the verge of dying. But when life sings (her voice is beautiful and happy) they become younger and happier. They live by themselves in a house that represents the world and the man they were with as children is their dad who represents man (humans) and man is explaining to life and death the purpose of their existence which makes death sad causing her part of the singing to be depressing, whereas life likes her purpose so she's more joyous. Even if I'm wrong it's still interesting to think about dont you think? Oh almost forgot death sings about the sad parts of their childhood while life sings the happiest parts.

  35. CrimsonMystWolf

    Bro I found the sound on tik tok and I lived it so I found the video and now I love it more because it's just so weird but good lol

  36. Maria Torres

    Wheew it's been a minute since I heard this song. Still beautiful

  37. Soup Castle

    Never forget


    At 2:21 is there the Dark Crystal castle, isn't there?

  39. Martin Jagl

    Richtig schön durchgeknallt. Gefällt mich!

  40. Braun Roberts

    My interpretation of whatever this is, when its up beat it's showing what it was like being sold the American dream in the 50s, a black and white world where it's like a fantasy. Then the lower depressing part is waking up to how the world really is and trying to find some way to carry on in this cold grey world

  41. Alfred Tovar

    Sounds like theyre trying too hard to be unique with thier voices, this is definately white ppl shit

  42. Doll Knight

    This I amazing.

    So artistic I love it.

  43. Art Zeppy

    Cool, at 2:18 they steal a scene from the dark crystal. Love that film and this song.

  44. Baso Pah

    I hope this song blows up again when Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance comes out

  45. Jessica DiSalvo

    My insanely emo friend at the time listened to cocorosie when I was 9 or 10 and she was 12 or 13 maybe. She showed my their songs and this mv was my favorite. I sang to it a lot, so listening to this song now brings up so many memories.

  46. Antoine Delles

    Merci alfa Roméo 😁

  47. Christian Watson

    I've been into CocoRosie since the student riots in France, 1968, and they have become close, personal friends. They were on top of their game, and if you want to know how I met them then read here

  48. Brep Brep
