Lyrics

The other day I saw a tree

The prettiest tree that I ever did see

A tree in a hole and a hole in the ground

 

And the green grass grows all around and around

And the green grass grows all around

 

Well on that tree there was a branch

The prettiest branch that I ever did see

A branch on a tree and a tree in a hole

And the hole in the ground

 

And the green grass grows…

 

Well on that branch there was a limb…

Well on the limb there was a stick…

Well on that stick there was a leaf…

Well on that leaf there was a nest…

Well in that nest there was a bird…

Well on that bird there was a feather…

Well on that feather there was a flea…

Well on that flee there was an atom…
