All in a Tree

I’m gonna plant us a tree

Just for you and me

We’ll survey all the land

For here to New Zealand

Then we’ll find us a seed

And have all that we need.

One day rain, 30 day shine

Won’t do for this heart of mine

30 day rain, one day dry

would drown all our dreams on my.

I’m gonna plant us a tree,

Just for you and me,

With fruit and shade so fine

We’ll dance with the sunshine

I’m gonna plant us a tree

Just for you and me,

Before the sun goes down

I’ll place it in the ground

Before this day is through

I’m gonna whisper I love you.

One day rain, 30 day shine

Won’t do for this heart of mine

30 day rain, one day dry

would drown all our dreams in cries.

I’m gonna plant us a view

Just for us two

With all the thirst for love

We’ll fly so high above

You’ll look down

And see the seed in a tree

And the rain.
