"The Acorn Song" copyright Hugh Banks

I'm just a seed on a shelf....just my little dried out self..
Wondering what I could be...They say I could be a big oak tree...
but I'm kinda used to the shape I'm in...sittin up here in this coffee can...
I'm Just a dried out nut wearin' my little cap...DON'T want to be a TREE...With all that goooey sap!!!!!
All my buddies around me..been up here for a while...
They say "You ain't the "tree type" man...
It's just not your style.
BUT ONE DAY when they thought I was hid.....
I snuck a quick peek out of the lid.
....and there in the shade of my daddy were swingin, from his strong LIMBS....two little children that were singin'....
Yea, I've heard stories..'bout what it takes to GROW.....And it sounds kinda messy,...
I just don't know....!!???
Lyin' in the mud in the pourin rain...?
Don't sound like my kinda thing...
I don't think I like the sound of this "growin thing".
Yea, we've heard stories..'bout what it takes to .....GROW..
It can get kinda messy,...and seem real slow....
But we can have fun in a pourin rain...
and watch it bounce off a window pane...
We kinda like the sound of this "growin thing"!!!!
So I started thinkin...it'd sure be a shame..
to sit here and shrivel..... 'cause I'm afraid of the rain.
I want to sprout up from the mud....then reach for the sky. And learn to soak up all the strength I can
From the rain that comes passing by.......
Then,.. I can tell my story..'bout what it takes to grow. ...It may sound a little messy...but, NOW I KNOW. .....that Growin's part of the plan.....
I Can't just sit here in this old can!!.....so Hey! Feller!!

Plant me in the soil....and Water me man!!!.....
Plant me in the soil...Just takes a little toil.....
and water me man.....!
