Lemonade Children's Song

by Patty Shukla

Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!
Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!

I made a big sign: FOR SALE LEMONADE
Buy a fresh cup; it's all homemade.
Water, lemons, a little sugar, too.
Mix them all together, to share with you.

Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!
Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!

Dad was the first to buy a fresh cup.
He took one sip and then drank it all up.
My sister asked if she could have one, too.
I said "OK." She said, "Thank You!"

Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!
Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!

25, 50, 75, a dollar
25, 50, 75, a dollar
25, 50, 75, a dollar
25, 50, 75, a dollar
Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!
Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!

My whole neighborhood came out to have some.
They drank it all up and now I have none.
Let's make more, for next Saturday.
But for now the stand's closed, come on let's play!

Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!
Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!

25, 50, 75, a dollar
25, 50, 75, a dollar
25, 50, 75, a dollar
25, 50, 75, a dollar
Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!
Lemonade, lemonade, come and get your lemonade
Lemonade, lemonade, for sale!

Count by 25s


In the Lemonade Children's Song, we counted by units of 25 (25, 50, 75, a dollar). See how fast and how high you can count by the following units:

      5 (5, 10, 15, etc.)
      10 (10, 20, 30, etc.)
      50 (50, 100, 150, etc.)

How about some really challenging ones?

      3 (3, 6, 9, etc.)
      7 (7, 14, 21, etc.)
      12 (12, 24, 36, etc.)
      2-1/2 (2-1/2, 5, 7-1/2, etc.)

Fun Facts About Lemons


Lemon trees were first planted in America when Christopher Columbus brought lemon seeds here in 1493.

According to the 2013 Guinness Book of World Records, the heaviest lemon ever recorded weighed 11 pounds and 9.7 ounces!

Lemons have lots of Vitamin C.

For more fun facts, check out the Science Kids website!

Sweet, Sour, Salty, and Bitter


Lemon juice is sour and sugar is sweet, but mix the right amount together in water, and you get a delicious treat!

Test your taste buds! Can you tell the four basic tastes apart? First, taste a small amount of sugar (sweet), lemon juice (sour), salt (salty), and unsweetened chocolate (bitter). Then taste a small amount of other foods and decide which taste group they belong to. Some ideas of foods to try (ask an adult first!):

  • Lime
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Vinegar
  • Cranberry
  • Pickle
  • Orange
  • Honey
  • Sauerkraut
  • Lemon
  • Olives
  • Granny Smith apple
  • Pretzels
  • Plain yogurt
  • Banana
  • Ginger
  • Potato chip
  • Grapefruit
  • Decaf coffee
  • Kale

Ounces, Cups, Pints, and Quarts


Before you run a lemonade stand, you'll need to brush up on how to measure liquids. Check out the Capacity Song for Kids by NUMBERROCK to learn more!
