Tree Song

Thanks very much to Jennifer O'Callaghan, who e-mailed me this song!

Hey there, tree
You're growing so tall
Funny that no one has noticed at all
That you're reaching high for those hopes in the sky
Trying to catch them before they fly by
You're like me, tree

Hey there, tree
You're spreading your limbs
Far out and fancy free to follow your whims
And you're reaching out to find meaning in life
Amidst all our wars and our troubles and strife
You're like me, tree

Hey, there tree
You hold your head high
Proud, but not haughty as the people walk by
And I'm trying my best to act the same way
So the next time you ask me, I can honestly say
You're like me, tree
