I Wonder

What does the phrase 'I Wonder' mean to you? What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see the phrase? For me, the first thing that comes to my mind when I first heard the phrase  was 'Fool's Garden's Lemon Tree'.  



I'm sitting here in a boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time, I got nothing to do
I'm hanging 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 a yellow (another) lemon tree
La, la da dee da
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
Where nothing ever happens -- and I wonder
Isolation is not good for me
Isolation 
I don't want to sit on a lemon tree
I'm stepping around in a desert of joy
Baby anyhow I'll get another toy
And everything will happen
and you'll wonder
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 (dit dit dit)
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree


Even though this song is no way related to Jeannie Kirby's 'I Wonder' poem, every time I hear the word 'I Wonder', this automatically comes to my mind. This is a great cover of Fool's Garden - Lemon Tree that I found recently by Miquel P. Senent. Enjoy! =)
