If I were a Tree, What Tree would I Be?

Mummy, Mummy, If I were a Tree, What Tree would I be? Mummy, Mummy, If I were a Tree, What Tree would I be? Would I be a Willow Tree? When the wind tickles me Dancing in the moonlight I delight To spin my long lanky leafy arms Designing good luck charms In the midnight Air Without a care. Would I be an Oak Tree?

When I was a little girl in Africa, I met a Flamingo one day, All day, all night all he could say, Was Ka Ka Ka, Ka Ka Ka. The other birds teased him, It made him feel so sad. It made him feel so bad. How could I help him? “Ka Ka Ka”, he cried. Oh how  very wrong, That this is his only song. No matter how hard he tried. He’s woken a crocodile, With one sleepy eye, He listens nearby, With a smile. Together we can rock this river. Trust me! Play me! Together we can shock this river. The flamingo could be a crocodile snack, But instead he ran his beak, Along each…
