(J.Darion and G. Kleinsinger)

One fine day in early spring
I played a funny trick
Right in the yard behind my house,
I planted a lollipop stick

Every day I watered it well
And watched it carefully
I hoped someday my stick would grow
To be a lollipop tree

cho: Ha, ha, ha, Ho, ho, ho
What a place to be
Under my lollipop, lollipop, lollipop
Lolly, lolly, lollipop tree

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

I sat beneath my lollipop tree
And looked up with a grin
And as I opened up my mouth
A lollipop popped right in

The winter came, the days grew cold
As winter days will do
And on my tree, my lollipop tree
Not a single lollipop grew

On every branch an icicle hung
The leaves were bare as bones
But as I knocked those icicles off
They turned into ice cream cones
