Song Lyric Sunday 13th December

Thanks to Jim for setting the weekly challenge
Last week we had Herpetologist which included the prompts Alligator/Crocodile/Lizard/Snake/Turtle. This week we have the fruit prompts of Apple/Banana/Cherry/Olive/Orange/Strawberry.

I’ve always loved this track by Meatloaf. I love the beat and instrumentals, and it is just GREAT to drive to at full volume (though other drivers might not think so).
It’s lemons, so citrus fruit like oranges, so hope it’s allowed!
The lyrics are in the clip.

“Life Is a Lemon and I Want My Money Back” is a radio single by Meat Loaf released in 1994. It was the second single from the album Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell and charted on the US Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart at number 17
The second track on Bat II, “Life is a Lemon and I Want My Money Back,” demonstrates a sense of pessimism. Several things are identified as “defective”, including love, sex, gods, childhood and the future.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I never heard this one before, or really much of anything by Meatloaf. I like it, though, for some reason. Seems to fit the days we’re living in right now. 🙂
