Tree Down, down falls the seed Down, down, water I’ll need A split down my side Out comes my roots Reaching for water all over Too big for my home, I sprout and grow One green leaf? No two, no three! Look, there’s scales growing on me The days and nights fly by like birds And years and years, o’ have you heard? I’m tall and green, lush leaves emerging free All these limbs coming out of me I’m home for so many, yet still need a home My roots stay stiff, feeding me, feeding me As the sunlight beats down on me Reach up, competition, grow tall to live I win, I win! Now what do I get? Oh oh nothing, oh nothing at all? But wait, I give provision for all. When Autumn comes, my leaves will fall But still I’ll give provision for all.
