Lemon tree (cartoon) (Fool's Garden)

A funny video of the beautiful song "Lemon Tree", expressing the literal meaning of the every line using pictures,  with subtitles. You can also watch the original video of the song going to the music section or clicking here: Lemon Tree

I'm sitting here in the boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time
I got nothing to do
I'm hangin’ around
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I'm driving around in my car
I'm driving too fast
I'm driving too far
I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon tree

Sing:
dup, du-du-du-dup dee-dup-duh
du-du-du-dup dee-dup-duh
dup dee-di-dee-duh

I'm sitting here
I miss the power
I'd like to go out taking a shower
But there's a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
While nothing ever happens and I wonder

Isolation is not good for me
Isolation, but I don't want to sit on the lemon tree

I'm steppin' around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I'll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree
And I wonder, wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see, and all that I can see, and all that I can see
Is just a yellow lemon tree

ANOTHER= Remember that the pronunciation of this word is /ənʌðə*/,

ANOTHER RAINY SUNDAY AFTERNOON= Rain is a metaphor for sadness, so the weather is reflecting his mood (he feels sad), as opposed to the "blue skies" she talked about when she was with him.

WASTING MY TIME= If you waste your time, you spend time doing nothing (or nothing useful) when you should be doing something.

I GOT NOTHING TO DO= I’ve got nothing to do. Notice that his pronunciation of the O here is too open for BrE, more like the one we find in AmE, but his accent is an almost perfect BrE everywhere else. Nevertheless, some British singers also open their O's a lot (for example George Michael), especially with the verb "got" meaning "have got".

HANGIN’= Hanging. To hang around is to go here and there with no particular purpose or direction.

I WONDER= Pronounced /wʌndə*/. If you wonder, you don’t know but you feel curious about it, you’d like to know.

TO CHANGE MY POINT OF VIEW= Your point of view is the way you think about something. To change your point of view is to change your opinion about it.

LONELY= If you are lonely you feel sad because you are alone (solitary).

NOTHING= Remember that we pronounce it /nʌθɪŋ/

‘BOUT= About

MISS= If you miss something you feel the lack or loss of it, you’d like it to be here but it is not. Same with people: I miss you, I wish you were here.

ISOLATION= Isolation is when you are completely separated from other people or things. If you are alone and have no contact with people, you are isolated. You can also isolate a house with a special material to stop the temperature from outside to interfere with the temperature inside.

STEPPIN’= Stepping. If you step on something you put your foot on it, as when you’re walking. To step around is to walk with no particular direction.

ANYHOW= However, nevertheless; somehow.

EVERYTHING WILL HAPPEN= He’s opposing this optimistic situation to his present state, where "nothing ever happens", so "everything will happen" means in this context "I’ll go out of depression and be happy, my life will start moving again.".
